Dressmakers Carbon Paper
« on: September 24, 2010, 10:53:10 pm »
Here's a question for the ladies - anybody know where I can get Dressmakers carbon paper (coloured carbon paper). I have looked at Ikes and Spotlight, but they don't even know what it is  :-X

thanks Savayla, but unfortunately that's tracing paper. The stuff I am looking for is carbon paper, like you would use in the office, except the dressmakers carbon paper comes in different colours, like yellow, red, green, white as well as the normal blue.

Hey Nolan,

Only place I know that might have it is Global fabrics (www.globalfabrics.co.nz) in Auckland. At least they'll be able to tell you where to find some?
