    I am looking for a source for this paper. It is the Neenah brand vellum paper in the mustard/gold package. A friend bought it at a paper store on her travels. I tried to google it, but came up pretty empty. Even from Neenah! She also said what they are charging online is about 3 times what she paid in the store!

    Do any of you have a PAPER store in your area that might carry this?
    She had a full ream and this paper is the BEST for paper piecing!

    I love vellum for paper piecing and I've just done a bit of a search to find it at a good price. I didn't see Neenah brand anywhere, but I'll be watching this thread to see if anyone knows of a source.

    So far all I've come up with are 16 or 17 lb. vellum in smaller quantities - 100 sheets or less.

    What weight is it?

    The vellum I use is almost like tracing paper and comes on a pad.

    What I could see is 67# which I know is way to heavy for paper piecing.

    sadly she removed the label to give to someone else doing a search and they lost it! I do know that Neenah uses the color coded package paper and always has. The mustard gold color is the key to what weight/type it is.

    I purchased a ream of UV/ULTRA II, made by Neenah, some time ago. I love this paper. With shipping it was almost $45.00. That makes it kinda expensive. I will be checking with Office Max to see if they can get it any cheaper.

    I'm going to go ahead and order some if the shipping costs are okay.

    With shipping it was just over $40, so I ordered multiple reams to bring the cost down. I do paper piecing almost exclusively, so I know I'll use it eventually, but if anyone wants smaller quantities let me know. Once it's here I can figure out how much will fit in a Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope to save on shipping.

    I have lately been using a different sort of paper for paper piecing. It came on a roll, which I cut to fit into my printer. The consistency is like a lightweight newsprint and it's brownish in color.

    I print the design on the paper, although with a light table, the paper is thin enough you could trace on it too. It tears easily and isn't as stiff as regular copy paper or vellum.

    It came from Home Depot, in the paint department. It was intended to be used for masking off areas to be painted.

    See if you have an XPEDEX in your area. They are a paper supplier and I have purchased Neenah vellum there before. It's a national paper supply chain.

    This is the same packaging of a ream of velum paper that i have been using out of for over 6 years both for embroidery templates and for paper piecing patterns. Theweb addy on my package is www.neeahpaper.com. The price on the web site that you sent was a very good price as far as I could tell. Only 23.00 but don't know what shipping on a ream of it would be. I received mine as a Christmas gift from one of my sons years ago. Hope this helps locate it. Esther

    Never heard of using this for pp isn't it kind of expensive Seen a show where Brenda Henning said 20lb was good to use which is cheaper. Haven't tried yet but will look into it when I get around to pp
