  1. I took a Thread Talk class on Sunday which featured all Superior Thread products and I finally got to play with some Texture Magic. I love that stuff. The design ideas are limitless. There is so much I want to do with it I wish I had bought more of it. At least now the store will be carrying it. I hope by the boatloads!
