2 - What brands are woth getting? - price and quality (able to sharp when necessary)

Thank you in advance

44  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Tracing paper & pattern/sew magazine on: May 04, 2006 11:09:30 AM
      My fellow crafters I need a little help...I have two questions.

Huh -  I need to know where to get tracing paper- one that looks like parchment (kind of transparent). I usually use this paper to copy pattern  from magazines. I catalog the paper patterns for future use. I have seen things similar to what I need, but the papers are very small..

Huh - Does any one know a worth subscribing sewing magazine? One that comes with patterns..

Thank you darlings..in advance for helping out

46  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Waistband & Interfacing on: April 17, 2006 04:01:47 PM
I am doing a semicircle skirt. I am constructing now the waistband with interfacing. I ironed the fabric+interfacing and it is not sticking together. Is there someone out there that knows if the iron sticking interface has a different name than just interface? When I bought it..I thought I was getting the right type.
Oy vey..I hope I am not getting too confused here. Cry
Thank you all.
