I am making some tablemats for my daughter and have bought insulbright [well I think that's what it is called?] thermal wadding. There is a slightly fluffy side and a less fluffy more shiny side. Does it matter which way up it goes?

Thanks for any help.

Never used it Eileen but on the web it seems to say that there is no right side. Seems you need extra cotton wadding if making oven gloves.

Empress Mills has some good advice on their web site for using it.

Hi Eileen,

I have used the insulbright. for placemats and it didn't seem to matter which way up it was. Really it depends whether you want a slightly soften feel at the top or bottom of your mat. Plus I would suggest trying stitching a small sample to see if your machine has any preference (if that makes sense).

Empress Mills site should be helpful and if you still have questions the people there are extremely helpful.

my machine prefers the fluffy side up and it doesn't half blunt the needles too. but they are done. photos are on the show and tell if you are interested.
