    Yes and I can get them at the dollar store for $3.00, have been using mine for 10 years now. Pretty good return on $3.00 I'd say.

    I tried the Fons and Porter design wall and was disappointed. A good flannel backed tablecloth would do as good in fact that's how I would describe it. I just out cotton batting on mine because I had some extra and it works great over the insulation board. The other day I had a quilt up but needed to look at another project so I simply layered on another piece of batting and put it up. The first layer stayed just fine after I removed the added project and batting.

The shelf that holds the design wall, has a shelf on top, so you can use it for various items. It is really nice, and the wooden shelf is made from a really light wood. You can get them any colors that you like.
    That is really cool, I'm going to make me one for my new studio. Thank you for posting this.

    I love my foam board covered with white flannel. A lap size top will cling nicely without pins. Larger sections or quilted pieces get pins stuck in just to be sure they don't land on the floor. I used upholstery flannel - 54" wide.

    You might think I am nuts, but I use flannel on an old projector screen. When it isn't being used, it can be rolled up with the blocks inside. I have two... and if I need the extra room, I put the other up and use them both together.

    Old vinyl fabric-backed tablecloth. That way I can take to classes with me. But I'm new and need a lot of classes!!!! LOL

    I have a big flannel backed table cloth pinned to my wall with tacks. Holds beautifully and was only a few bucks. Tablecloth is sure ugly, but no one sees that.
