    It looks like it would be nice to use here and there in a small quilt. Just wonder how it was to use and is it placed in the top and bobbin thread as well? Thanks.

    Well, that's a new one for me.

    http://www.shoppersrule.com/pc/SP-IN...al2/index.html

    Bigger spool, cheaper per yard price. This is a Japanese product.

    So it's like Texture Magic, but just the thread.

    Certainly cheaper to use, and the same amount of effort.

    Interesting. I would venture though that both have their uses.

    I will have to try this - I'll add it to my next equilter order.

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    That is a very interesting idea. Might work good in a landscape wall hanging to add more texture.
    The link for equilter says you can use it in your bobbin also.

    My FMQ isn't very good yet. I bet this would help disguise my lack of talent ;-)

    If the top thread shrunk, but not the bobbin, wouldn't it leave the stitches loose on the back? I think I would use it in both :D:D:D
