Have you ever bought any of the new laminated fabrics? If so, what have you used them for, and where did you buy them (local shop or online)?
Our sales reps have been showing them to us, and they have fun designs, for sure. But I asked the rep to send me an old sample piece, just folded in an envelope, to see how it made the journey. As I suspected, I could not get the creases out of the fabric. Naturally, I only ironed on the cotton side of the fabric, not the laminated side (which might have melted, or stuck to my iron).
The rep says that these fabrics are rolled-on-tube (as opposed to doubled on a bolt). But even so, if you bought some would you be taking it home on a tube? I'm thinking that it's much more likely that you would have it folded and put into a shopping bag and... that would introduce creases, right? Making me wonder if those creases were permanent, too? Or not? Or is it not something to worry about anyway?
