    Just to let you know it's not there but thanks they helped me with other goodies.
    Well I drove CTN flat & not 1 craft/needle work shop open but will try 1st thing tomorrow.
    I have found a shop in KZN which sells the Darice Plastic Canvas 14 count online @ R29/sheet which is like an A4 size which I thought it would be larger than A4 but was wrong anyway here's the link: Daaft Designs - Plastic Canvas

    Well Brenda I'd like to use it in my ATS I'm building & would prefer using the plastic canvas as I can shape it just the way I want it knowing it will stay that way & not deform. I'm sure I could use shade cloth but that just means alot more work involved & wasted space.

    Of course, even lfs is 100% fine to mention. Always has been, don't know where you guys get this notion from that it's forbidden to mention other lfs's???
