am going on a patchwork/basket making course. I don't want to appear a total numpty but one of the requirements is cotton interlining. this will not be visible in the final product.

what is cotton interlining?

google suggests its used as a curtain lining is this what it will be?

thanks in advance

They probably mean something like calico or sheeting? Do you think it is going to be a foundation?

Someone else may know better.

Cottonpatch have some stuff called Timtex but it is not cotton. They may mean something like this.

Can you ask them what they actually want?

Eileen - I think it COULD be the fabric that is used as interlining for curtains - not the insulating one, just the one that is used to give "body" to the curtains. It is used between the face fabric and the normal curain lining and so it isn't seen, just as you are describing. The "proper' one is made of cotton and it is thicker than normal lining but not as thick as a wadding. I've not got time to have a look on line right now but will try later on. Maybe Amazon will show something - it would be listed as "Curtain Interlining - cotton" I may be way off beam but I thought it worth mentioning.

Glad you got the info you needed Eileen - maybe the nice lady organising it will give that explanation next time and then her students will know right away!! Have a lovely time on the course now.

yes indeed.

the other ladies have worked with her before, I am the newbie. So perhaps everyone else knew.

I'm really looking forward to it. we will be only about 10 miles from Bungay [Suffolk] where there is the Sew &So shop. apparently a patchworkers heaven. the advert in one of my mags says they stock 6,000 [yes 6,000] bolts of fabric laugh
