We would love to see you along the route or at one of the lunch stops if you are near one of these towns. It’s going to be a Great Race. Oh, and to all of you who read about using felt without sewing…yes you can use it without sewing. We are updating our instruction sheets and website to reflect the capabilities of the adhesive that is now on the felt. Thanks for reading and good luck with your heat printing.
Ah, if only I was retired…
have fun Ted,
