I've used rick rack on some projects and love it.  I signed up for their newsletter.  Thank you for sharing the site.  Loved it!  Thumbup

Pretty much exactly how I do my rick rack. I don't like the edges to curl up so I usually sew down the edges. Good videos.

I use it on projects, especially place mats, I like to run a strip down the seam between the feature fabric and the contrast strip I put for knives and forks to sit on. Going to look at all this info over a cuppa, thanks for sharing

I have a wavy stitch on my machine that I can adjust the size on and make it fit little rick rack almost perfectly! Very Happy
