The nylon mesh stencil is so easy to use. There is no right or wrong side, just position the stencil, swipe the Pounce Pad over the top, lift off and sew!
Some stencils have circles with a cross for alignment of repeating designs.

How to care for your Full Line Stencils
They are tough and can be transferred countless times. If they begin to get a little dusty fro the chalk, use a damp cloth to clean them. A dry microfibre towel works really well. If you're using the Ultimate Pounce Powder you can actually iron them to clean them! Don't iron if you've been using other colours of chalk (Pinhole Quilting only sell the white)
How to store Full Line Stencils
You can punch holes into them or put them in sheet protectors. For the larger stencils you can store flat or roll them up as they don't retain much memory and can be ironed to get rid of creases.
