... after some intensive search on Amazon and Ebay, I ended up ordering the medical exam table paper from American Amazon. This one.
You will discover more things that we don't have in the UK.  I envy US citizens for the wealth of sewing related products available to them.  Hope you are not planning on making a winter coat because you won't be able to find Kasha lining or even satin backed flannel.

If I've run out of my stock and have needed to trace something I have used greasproof paper before today. ☺️

I use a tracing wheel and cheapo lining paper from B&Q/Homebase - the cheapest I can find. The only downside is that it does leave small holes in the pattern oh and big square washers to hold the pattern down. Thinking about it B&Q is very useful for 'sewing related items as I use S hooks to hang patchwork rulers and have bought small containers for buttons, safety pins etc and nail/screw boxes hold machine needles - sorry to go a bit off topic.

Talking about putting Burda paper onto a roll - why is it that since I threw away 2 carboard tubes that came with some fabric I bought I have discovered numerous uses for them?

Mainly Burda tracing paper, but I also have Dot & Cross Paper.
I saved some large sheets of paper that some furniture was packed in.  :D There were several sheets about 1m x 2m, quite useful.

As part of the clear out, I have just dragged the large roll of too thick tracing paper :angry: from underneath the sideboard.  I'll be donating this later in the week.

I use greaseproof paper or sometimes brown paper

The medical paper sounds good, but I always have greaseproof lurking around and have tons of it, only downside is that because of the waxed quality of it it’s hard to stick together

... So after some intensive search on Amazon and Ebay, I ended up ordering the medical exam table paper from American Amazon. This one.

I had just about run out of pattern paper and as this was such a good price I ordered some on Monday, and it was delivered on Wednesday, so it only took 2 days to travel all the way from the US to Blighty, which was mightily impressive.

I would definitely order it again, but looking at the amount on the roll I think I have enough to keep me going for a good while yet.

@Hachi - thanks so much for posting the link to the product  :loveit:

I donated the MASSIVE roll of too thick tracing paper to charity and will keep this thread in mind for when I return to sewing.

Glad to hear you liked it!
Looking at my order history, my last roll lasted 2 years  :D

I wonder if this is the same sort of paper - from Amazon UK

ETA: wait a minute, it's perforated but I don't know where the perforations are. Probably not so good.

That stuff is absorbent and has perforations, so no I don't think so.

Edit - I read your edit after I wrote my post  :)

I wonder if using a UK debit/credit card on USA site will be okay. Hmm ...

Sewbee,

I have used my credit card to buy stuff from the USA so there shouldn't be a problem.
