I am taking a course online with Craftsy. I would like to purchase waxed tracing paper sheets. Have done searches and only come up with unwaxed. Any suggestions where I can purchase online?

Coincidentally, I just worked on a project yesterday where I used freezer paper (waxed) to stabilize some satin stitching for a small wall quilt. It worked great; I lightly pressed the waxed side to my fabric and stitched away, then it was very easy to pull off.

Richard the Thread sells waxed tracing paper. Just be aware that they have a $35.00 (US) minimum order. HTH.

Some people have been substituting Saral Transfer Paper from di## Blick...it's a lot cheaper because Richard the Thread has a minimum purchase.

Clover makes a waxed tracing paper. They are small sheets, not like the huge ones that Susan Khalje suggests in her couture classes.

You can search the Clover website and order directly from them. I've had fairly quick service from them in the past. I also bought a half dozen packages of the Clover waxed tracing paper from J. Hittle, who offer free shipping if you buy >$100 of merchandise. I wrote a review of their site a while ago. I just checked last month and they do still carry it.

As for the large sheets, I've never seen them, and when I took a class from Susan Khalje, she offered a small amount to her students that sold out immediately. I think she imports it from France.

Hi, Susan Khalje recommended Richard the Thread for the wax paper. They are very nice. They called me when all the colors I wanted were not in, to let me know and see what I wanted to do- have them send what they had and then send the back-ordered color or hold the order til complete. The lady who called was lovely.
That said, I do not know why you could not use the rolls of Saral wax free paper. It is narrow but you can cut to any length. Does anyone know why the wax paper would be better ? The sheets are much larger but you could tape the Saral together.

Greenberg and Hammer used to sell "professional transfer paper" which looks exactly like the waxy tracing paper Richard the Thread sells. I bought several sheets of navy and yellow several years ago from G&H and the stuff lasts forever. I am still on my first sheet of each color. I mostly use it to add seam allowances to patterns like this and occasionally to mark fabric. Ok, so that was posted six years ago, well, that tells you how long the paper can last, lol. If Richard the Thread sells the same paper it's worth every penny.

Did anyone see that you can get a free sample of the Saral paper from the company here?
