I have a drawer full of specialty tools and the flimsy paper instruction sheets that come with them. Unfortunately, over time, those sheets get torn, dog-eared and stained from simple, normal, wear and tear. Ask me how I know. With the help of my daughter in law (thanks, honey!) these instruction sheets are now laminated and highly durable. These sheets will stand the test of time and weather all the use and abuse I can throw at them, even an occasional spill. Someday, when I pass my quilting tools on to the next generation (or beyond) the instructions will be as perfect and pristine as the day I bought them, and it won't be because I didn't use them; I use my tools and I need the instructions!
