ok, this might seem like an unusual request, BUT I was wondering if anyone knew where one could purchase a specific plaid pattern.  I'm looking for my grandmothers family plaid, she got a ton of it in Scotland many years ago, but all I have left of it is like a foot square scrap.  (She made the most hideous pants out of it for my dad.  It still sends me into fits of laughter when I think about them.)  On that note, I thought that I would make myself a jacket out it... heehee.

if your family is distinguished (?) you may be able to search and find it here or at least what it's called. maybe if you know that you can get it special ordered...?

You should be able to do a web search for "family tartans" (that's what those plaids are called) or "kilts" and find lots of websites. My husband and son are renting kilts for a wedding and family tartans are also sold by the yard from the same catalog. If I recall, the website is scottishlion.com. They have a tartan finder.
