    1. It’s all just a matter of personal preference! I’m enjoying sewing on lightweight newsprint that feeds well through my printer (and it’s inexpensive) so that’s what I’m sharing. Use what works best for you and if you’re not sure, it’s fun to experiment with different types of paper. Happy sewing! Sheri
