Thanks everyone who answered about the flannel wall. I don't have access to anything other then online cause I'm 1 hour from the stores and don't drive and on top of that Covid LH has me strapped to the machines. I have to wait until someone is going down and they have to want to detour for me. Walmart seem to be $14 to 50 online they are 54x108 so I need two. The $14 is for a white one.

WMuTech, why the insulation? What's it for? I seem to be allergic. When I was younger I used to be able to climb into the attic and would always come down itchy and in need of a shower. :-)

The two that did not have any rips were the yellow office envelopes.
The current postmaster changed out sorting equipment. Mail has been in tatters ever since. I taped my envelope. Did that help it at all? Mine was not a yellow office envelope.

Did they arrive intact? I am particularly concerned about whether or not my envelope held up with the tape that I added. I am very glad it got there!!!

ibex - it was intact, but it was ripped. Yours was the rip on the bottom the ran up the middle of the front and back by about 2 inches on each side. The rip started in the area between your two pieces of tape. In addition part of your flap ripped as well. And I just noticed an inch rip on the left side thru the tape! Maybe Edward Scissorshands is working for the Post Office now. Your card has gone thru a lot to get to me!

It seemed all three of the envelopes with rips were kind of crumpled, etc. I even wondered if they had been in a high moisture/rain area - they all seemed not as stable as an envelope should be, if that makes sense. Another card which had a rip on the bottom was taped on all sides. I could tell you all took a lot of care and attention to getting your cards out proper, and it was sad to see what happened to them along the way.

Macy B The insulation is the quilt wall. You and push pins into it. it is firm, but very light weight. Mine is not attached to the wall, but some quilters do put them on the wall in a semi-permanent way.

Ladies, it will help everyone it you would tell us who the sender was when a package arrives damaged. The tear will not likely be the fault of sender, but it will help every one to know if a heavier envelop is needed. You can post here or PM the sender so they are aware their envelops are being damaged. Thanks, All.


Have a beautiful week-end. Happy May Day!!
