interleaving paper

On the MGP3 someone asked about backing... I had never heard of interleaving paper until I took a class from Robin in November. It is the greatest stuff EVER... She sells it at her website. http://www.robinatkins.com/supplies.html#supl

It is light, firm and flexible and keep your beading flat. When finished it is like an old dollar bill. ...strong and flexible.. Must have a very high fiber content because it feels almost like cloth when the piece is finished... Until then I had used felt for bead embroidery and it is OK but does have a tendency to stretch...

i mentioned robin's interleaving paper on the post about backing, but i failed to describe it like you did. i second everything you just said! :) i love the interleaving paper, and will probably never use anything else. i've got to place a new order soon, in fact, 'cause i'm almost out, and that would be a tragic day to sit down to bead and not have any of robin's interleaving!
