Freestanding board to use for presentation

Angela Bunt in Streatham Park
Can anyone recommend somewhere I can buy/borrow/hire a freestanding felt display board for a presentation. I need to be able to use drawing pins to attach sheets of paper to it.  I'm happy to buy one but don't want to pay the sort of prices I've seen on ... [ more ]
I'm sure you can use a head board of a bed cover it with some nice fabric ... Get a picture frame and piece of wood cover in nice material and you have nice board . A old cupboard door cover it and it will do the same job Recycle Upcycle .

I use Magic Whiteboard, its excellent, just static it onto a wall or window - and my sister has them up all around her house for her kids to draw on without messing up the walls!

Why of course a woman would do, Jane E - normally I'd do it myself but I find I don't have the time or the inclination at the moment! My somewhat sexist headline was to catch people's attention, and it had the desired effect.
