Just placed my first order to FSS for interfacings. I hope I won't regret it.
It seems like a big chunk to spend on interfacings, but when you figure one yard of 60" is the same as three yards of the 20", the prices aren't bad, even with shipping added.

I don't know how you could regret it.

I have never spent that much at one time for just interfacings, that's all.

Believe me - you will not regret this purchase.

I have been buying from Pam for some time and placed an order for an interfacing I had never used. She immediately contacted me to make sure I had ordered the right stuff. Turns out I had made a mistake and am so glad that she not only caught it but also contacted me about it. You don't get customer service like that too often.

Her products are top notch - that's the only brand I use.

With your order you'll get a sheet explaining how to apply the interfacing - follow the instructions and you will be very pleased.

It's quality interfacing and very much worth the money.

I'm a notorious bargain hunter and this is the only interfacing I will purchase from now on.

Thanks! I am looking forward to trying it. Where I am located I just have a JoAnns, and all they have any more is Pellon brand.

Regret buying interfacing that works really well? No. Regret buying more pellon? Yes.

It is really good interfacing and Pam is very generous in sharing her expertise.

Hi MartiP,

I was apprehensive about placing an order for interfacing from Pam, not because of the prices, (which works out the same, or better than the interfacing which is approx. 1/3 the width), but because I had never used interfacing before.

I thought of buying the cheap stuff (Pellon) just to practice with it, but I reconsidered that decision. I wouldn't be getting the same results as I would with Pam's interfacing, so I decided to buy Pam's only. I was happy to receive the instruction sheet that she so thoughtfully included, and I read it several times before I even cut my first piece.

The interfacing ironed on like a dream. In a way, I was sad that I used it on a shirt that I was making solely for mowing the lawn and working in the garden. The results were so nice, I felt like I had "wasted" my beautiful interfacing on a such a garment. Actually, I was so impressed with the way the fabric looked after I applied the interfacing, I looked at it and marveled over it for quite a while. I could not believe the inexpensive cotton I was using could look so good - the difference was amazing.

When I think about it, even if that shirt did not deserve that nice interfacing, I did get experience using interfacing, and I did not have to worry if I had screwed it up a bit since it wasn't a "good shirt." When it comes time to use it on the "better" shirts I will be making, I will feel confident not only in my ability to properly apply the interfacing, but in the wonderful results I know I will get.

If you have any questions, Pam is very helpful, before and after you make a purchase.
