    Could you please help me. A friend very kindly came back from Aussie with these boxes of "freezer" paper for me. They do NOT look like the boxes i see advertised. Can i use these? Keeping my fingers crossed that i can! :shock:

    Oh no - That looks like plastic film - not the same thing as freezer paper. Freezer paper is a heavy white paper with wax on one side. I'll see if I can find a pic...

    I've never seen this brand, but the picture shows what is in the box - HTH!

    I would think that if you can write or print on them and they iron onto fabric, they should be good, but that is only my opinion.

    The picture almost looks like wax paper which means 'no'. Can you show a better piece of it?

    Is the paper waxed just on one side if so it is great if not sorry.

    You need the freezer paper that is paper on one side you can write on and the other side has a wax that will iron to the fab and works most wonderful for allpique.
    Hoep you got the right stuff.

    No, no, no - this is not what you need.

    Go-Between is nothing like freezer paper for applique.

    Our supermarkets in Australia DO NOT sell freezer paper as you know it.

    I get my freezer paper from LQS who import it from America.

    I don't get why freezer paper is so hard to find lol. I take it for granted that it is everywhere here. For awhile those bleach pens were all the drooled over items in Australia since they didn't get them there. Sadly those we can't ship either.

    If you are going to do freezer paper paper piecing you might be able to do a similar way and just use a washable glue stick to hold your fabrics in place. I saw that done on tv. I know it isn't what you wanted to hear but it's just a thought :)

    Thanks for the information. I think that freezer paper is not as readily available in some countries. Please correct me if I am wrong but I have not been able to find freezer paper in England in the supermarkets or local shops and not all the LQS have freezer paper either.

    cuddlyquilter, you could try using it like I use the Press and Seal. Draw a quilting pattern on it with a permanent marker, let it draw, and smooth the film (in this case you will probably have to pin it) over your quilt, quilt the pattern & tear away the paper.
    Also, if you can see through it, you could draw your whole appliqué background onto it and use it for a placement quide. Just a couple things that you could use it for, I know not what you were hoping for though.

    I can't find a shipping information page here. you may have to send an email to find out whether or not they can ship to Australia.

    their freezer paper is a wee bit pricier than what we get in the grocery store, but it's been especially designed for crafters.

    Freezer paper is available from any quilt shop in Uk, I have bought it in Tesco too, cottonpatch.co.uk sell it as well as loads of fabric etc they are in Birmingham and do mail it to you. It come in a box like the one Obsessed had shown here except the box is blue. It is not expensive and there is loads in the box

    Hi Cuddlyquilter,
    I am from Pretoria ...just saw your post on FP ...
    I bought a whole box of Reynolds FP online from a lady in Roodepoort ...
    Grace Nobili from http:/quiltecfabrics.co.za
    She's got some good stuff and is very reliable with the posted packages.
    You can give her a try - I'm sure you won't be sorry.

    Oh i cannot believe this, i send my quilts to be stop stitched with Grace.....small world. I never gave it a thought that she would be selling it. Thanks very much for the info. I will most definitely get hold of her. By the way, her top stitching of quilts is fantastic. I have had 5 quilts done by her. Look at my pics, and you will see a couple of my quilts. Happy sewing

    For the longest time we couldn't buy the white freezer paper in Canada except at a LQS and it was very expensive. Now we can buy it almost anywhere. Reynolds is the brand. There are even directions on the box for using it for quilting.
