    Hi, I was wondering if anyone can tell me what kind of white board was used in this material folding tutorial.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-43871-1.htm

    and where one could find it.

    Thanks Bunches

    It looks to me as if those are foam core boards -- very light and widely available in places like Walmart, Target, etc. They would likely be in the school products area where posterboard and paper are sold. The boards are about a quarter-inch thick with white paper on both sides. They also come in black.

    Just be aware that the paper on these would not be acid-free (archival quality). If using them to store fabric, you might want to coat them with polyurethane.

    she says it's sign board, I guess the waxy corrigated stuff that politians use, I'm sure the foam core would work

    They look like the coroplast boards. There's a lady on the board that sells them already cut for a reasonable price.

    Here's her topic,

    I really like the coroplast boards. They're really light weight and they're acid free.

    I bought the foam boards (like poster board, but it's foam) at the Dollar Tree so they werw only $1 each and I got around 20 small boards from 1 board.
