Tuesday on Chilly Hollow Needlepoint Adventure, Jane had a post about the manufacture and usage of this braid. It reminded me that I had (I'll double-check) 8 beginner kits for kumihimo. I also have additional instructional booklets for 2 different types of braids (numbers to be later determined).
This is the original kit. It is from Accent Bead Design. This photo shows the elements of the kits.
In 2005, the suggested MSRP was $40.00 for the kit. I am willing to sell them for $30.00. The additional instructions were MSRP $10.00, so those I will sell for $7.50. Let me know if you are interested and then contact Needle Nicely, 772-567-6688. Postage will be minimal, but will depend on what you purchase.
EDIT: I discovered another booklet that I will sell for $7.50
