    I was in to Staples last week.
    A young lady in line before me purchased two packages of adding machine paper.
    I wasn't brave enough to ask her if she was Board member, but when I saw the rolls, I was sure thinking it! LOL

    Oh, I would have asked. It would be nice to know someone close to where you live and have the same love of quilting.

    I think it was in 2000 that I came up with this

    If you find them please let me know. I would love to make larger strings.
    I guess I could cut my own but way to much work.

    Thank you for sharing this idea, especially the roll holder. So nice to sew a bit and come back to do more later. I'll be watching for rolls of paper at the flea markets.

    All I can say is WOW !!
    Where can I find the pic of the curtains mentioned a few pages back, sounds like something cute to hang in a sewing room.

    I just asked hubby if he had tape at his office and I also need a old CD to use to trace for another project, he wanted to know what in the he** was I making now !! LOL

    I think I will look into getting some shelf paper at the dollar store.Or having my husband cut a roll in half with a saw I will let you know if I try it. You know I just had another thought as I was writing this. I have made string quilts sewing onto old sheets. Now I have to buy new cheap one riped into blocks why couldn't I ripe them into strips? I'll see. When you use cloth though you have to do a lot of pressing.

    Fax paper is @ 8" wide and you often can find it cheap at yard sales or thrift shops
