Try these:-

I have used them quite in the past a bit for fancy papers, very helpful too. Could and did spend hours in the Mayfair shop

Danger zone for me, but I'd highly recommend them too.
I wouldn't dare visit the shop. I would come out penniless

there are usually a few sellers on ebay too if you only need one or two things. Empress Mills do useful threads and tapes

Thanks for those links - I'll check them out and hopefully get what I am after. It's a long, long time since I did any bookbinding though...
