    Has anyone ever used it? I saw it on Martha Pullen's show this week. It is every expensive ($23.50 yd). I wonder if there is something one could use to create the same effect.

    It is the only thing I know of that will create that effect.

    Too many other things on my want to do list. I guess I could put it at the bottom. Once all the newness wears off, then I can decide if it is worth it! :)

    If you make bags, you can use the texture magic on the outside pockets and then you only need a small amount for a fun look!

    I never saw that thread before. Pretty neat. I do remember years ago that one could put thin round elastic in the bobbin and sew a zig-zag stitch and it would cause puckers in the fabric.

    I used it (on a practice piece) and wasn't happy with the results so didn't use on my project.

    As for another product - no, but I suppose smocking will give the same result. Gosh, I remember learning how to smock in a different lifetime.

    I learn something new everyday. I have put this in my favorite list. I hope I live to be 99 years old, then I might get through my list. :lol: :lol:

    I have a piece of this but still haven't given it a try. Of course, it was lost in my sewing room for almost a year.

    I have not tried it myself - it does come in small packages as well
