    Smile Flannel Board

    I have created a safe haven for my quilting in a little upstairs room. However I am lacking a display wall or a flannel board. Is that something i can make or do I need to buy one? Any suggestions welcome as I find that I need a way to visualize, etc.

    Welcome to the forum. I had a newsletter yesterday that showed a fantastic way to make a display board - very easy and easily sized to fit your space. She used pre-stretched canvas on wood frames and stapled flannel over them. These canvases are readily available in any arts and crafts store and come in a multitude of sizes. Have fun and show us what you come up with.

    I put up some thin poly batting with some Velcro. It's on a storage cabinet so I had to slit it in half so I could open it.

    I use a piece of foam core from the craft store and covered it with fleece. They also come in a variety of sizes and are lightweight enough to move around and thin enough to store easily.

    Good idea on the canvas! I might do that down in my dining room for a second little wall. It get's hot upstairs.

    I bought flannel and put it directly on the wall using thumb tacks to hold it in place. Mine goes from floor to ceiling. At the LQS they use one of the vinyl table clothes, using the felt backing for the display area.

    I use a flannel backed table cloth tacked up on the wall. Works great for me.

    I bought a piece of fleece and was going to hang a rod over the french doors - which take up the entire wall - only wall without windows- in my sewing room. I thought to use command hooks to hang the rod and the cafe curtain hooks to clip up the fleece. That would mean the design wall fleece could be pulled aside to open the door. Is it a big problem that the fleece would move around on the rod - like a curtain?? Haven't really known what to do. Also the cashier at the discount fabric store said fleece wouldn't work and I'd have to buy flannel but it does seem to work. Does anyone know???

    I want to get flannel and put on rod above my French doors as well. I'd like it to work like a blind though where it would roll up when not it use. Just haven't gotten around to it yet.
    Thank you,
