Plastic Canvas
Good morning

my daughter is making a project with 140 up and down 110 going across, what size plastic canvas is that, and also do you carry it. Thank you very much for your help.

The design leaflet or chart should tell what mesh size to use for the design. In Plastic Canvas the sheets go by Mesh size and there are multiple mesh sizes....5, 7, 10 and 14. Those numbers represent how many squares there are in 1 inch of the plastic canvas sheet. The smaller the count (mesh size), the larger the holes will be. 7 mesh is the most universal and uses 4 ply yarn while 10 mesh usually uses 3 ply yard.

To find out what size she needs, you would need to know what mesh size to use for the design and that information comes from the leaflet itself or the designer of the design. If there's not one listed, it's more than likely a 7 mesh since that's the most universal one to use. She would probably need the largest size of sheet which is an Artist size 7 mesh 13.6" x 21.5".
