    Hahaha

    I swear I just picked some up to test at Joanne's and I picked up 10 more yards of wonder tape with a 50% off coupon

    Testing it out momentarily

    Test done

    Addendum: you *should* allow it to dry per instructions before stitching through it

    Probably otherwise you risk a bit of residue on your needle.

    Works GREAT!

    I'm ready to get to going now!

    I suspect you'll be signing up for Joann's text message coupons (if you haven't already). Awesome!

    I was talking to a person that works there

    They run these 50% off a single item things - she kinda whispered that if I really needed x number of boxes of say the wonder tape - nothing is stopping a person from making a couple or few trips there

    I use the coupons and get the emails already and have the app!!

    Unmarked my spots along the head and foot end of my shell fabric corresponding to each future baffle placement.

    Next I make marks and start attaching and sewing the no see um

    Possibly "huge" 3 inch snowy weekend (that is a lot for AL lol) so perhaps will get some good chill sewing time and make headway

    Jelly - would using MARA 70 on this build be a "problem"

    I picked up some sew all tonight but don't like the color match - I had bought perfect match from dutch of the MARA 70 to my colors and I was tempted to use that...but figured the sew all with 70/10 microtex will be a bit more proper...

    This thread reminded me of it. I may give it a try on quilt material and see if it works better than the color fabric pencils. The pencils are different colors and that helps when working with different fabric colors. I can select a contrasting color.

    Use the 70. I've been sewing with 70 on membrane .66 and it is just great. Thinner thread is better in these outdoor fabrics.

    The sew all is MARA 100 I believe and is a bit thinner

    100 is also good. It is thinner than 70.
