That's great, as some folks can't do that, though it isn't really that hard to do if you know the basics of saddle stitching.That is a very good idea! I will contact the folks on that website and see if they would prefer I do that, and I also planned to send them some of the reference pictures you had posted earlier, showing the swords in a more horizontal hanging position. If worse comes to worse I could probably always have them send the material for the frog not attached and then cut it to size and attach it myself in the correct position. I'm pretty crafty when it comes to things like that, so I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem!
Sounds like a plan.
