Get a Matthew Newsome kilt for $5

From X-Marks the Scot-

Who wants a four-yard box pleated kilt, made by me to your measurements, in the tartan of your choice? And the best part.... it's only $5.00!

Well, $5.00 won't guarantee you'll get a kilt made by me, but it will get you a chance. And you can buy as many chances as you like.

The Scottish Tartans Museum is holding a raffle for one of my kilts, which will be made-to-measure for the winner. We are starting to sell tickets now, and will hold the drawing at the Taste of Scotland Festival on June 19 this year. (You do not have to be present to win).

Obviously, you can purchase your tickets at the museum. But to help folks who want to participate but may not be within an easy distance of Franklin, NC, we have also set up an on-line ordering page for the raffle tickets.

It's just like our gift shop pages in terms of payment, and in fact you can even add a raffle ticket or twelve to any order you place through our gift shop. Just "add to cart."

The winner will be contacted for measurements and tartan choice. You can choose any medium or heavy weight tartan stocked by Lochcarron, House of Edgar, or Strathmore.

What's more, I'm waiving my normal tailoring fee for this kilt, so even more of the proceeds from this fund raiser will go directly to support the museum.

Spread the word far and wide! If the raffle is successful we may repeat it every year. Good luck, everyone!

We bump into each other again. I had a Lamont made by you a few years back. It was and is a great kilt. I got the 4 yard box. I just recommended you on another thread. Judging from the date of this post, I suspect, I wouldn't stand a chance for the $5 kilt.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Matt is a master kilt maker. Well worth your money.

Warm regards,


Donald Patrick
