    I always like to see the products listed. My hearing aids do not pick up words very well when spoken so fast.

    What great inspiration and information, thank you so much. Can I suggest you add a list of products used, with links to more information or perhaps even where to buy? Thanks again.

    Thank you so much Heather. I have always wanted to do this but never knew how or where to start. You named several products and how to use them, which helps a lot. I love the fact that you can also color some yourself, how neat is that. You are going to make artists out of us yet……thank you again. Love it. Claudia

    Is there a class to purchase for this with written instructions? If not this would be great in order to provide details on items to purchase and “how to”, so one does not have to try and watch it over and over to get details.

    This was a great video. For the products you discussed, what kind of printers do the work with? Laser or ink jet or both?

    There is no mention of whether these products require an INKJET printer or can be used on a laser printer. This information is vital, since no one wants to ruin a printer! Please reply to let us know?

      Hello Arlene,

      Unfortunately, we do not have a printable list of products at this time, however she does make mention of each product she uses.

    Enjoyed watching this video a lot. Have to agree with previous comments it would be nice to include a list of products used that we could print out or stop the video on and write down ourselves. I’m not sure if she said she was using “TAP” or “CAP” for the last product that was her favorite. Will have to do some research.

    How do I get the closed captioning to work, says unknown which would be English. Either that list the products you’re using. I didn’t get the brand name for the glue method.

    What tp put picture of a school into college T-shirt quilt. My experience has been BAD. I bought transfer paper that was rubbery – pinned well, NOT washable started peeling as soon as put into quilt. Printed on 100% cotton, look great washed and faded. I wold love to finish the quilt to give to my son-in-law. Any ideas???

      Hi Patricia,

      Thank you for contacting us. With these products it is really trial and error. I would suggest trying the product on a few different kinds of fabric patches or pieces to see which one you like the best.

      Also make sure to follow the directions.

      Good Luck,

      Sincerely,

    Thank you. I did get all the names and typed in Word and stopped your video to clarify what I heard.
    I have one question: CNT is a pattern company for quilters who like to make their own clothes. I did not see in their catalog that they have TAP transfer paper. I will check with my own quilt stores here in Huntsville, AL. I am sure they can help. It was a very informative video. I watched it twice!
