This is extremely portable for any quilt maker. The advantages of Fusamat: Fusamat revolutionizes the applique process by allowing you to see through the mat during construction – making the applique process much easier. The tacky surface enables you to create your applique design in one easy composition. Its unique covering allows for a non-slip ironing surface and applique formation. In the past fusible would leak onto your iron and ironing surfaces causing a huge mess – new technology built into Fusamat stops the leakage of fusible altogether. Your Fusamat is easily cleaned, very strong, reversible and durable so it will take any beating you give it. This is truly a must-have for all of us who do and love applique!
