Learn to Sew: Making Fringe and Tassels

My homemade fringe maker.
Several years ago, I tried a technique in Linda Lee's book, "Sewing Edges and Corners." It was magic - I made my own fringe from yarn and ribbon. I rigged up a frame from dowels and wood (yes, I'm the daughter of a carpenter!) and went to town. I wrapped the ribbon and yarn around the dowels, and wrapped and wrapped and wrapped some more. Then I used some Seams Great to sew it all together. Viola! AWESOME fringe! But it was a bit difficult and time-consuming.

So when I opened my studio, I had a problem: I didn't want to make frames for my sewing students, so what could I do? Well...I didn't need to do a thing because someone else had a BETTER IDEA and now you can buy your very own fringe maker from My Own Fringe Maker!

Has anyone tried it? It's a bit pricey, but the fringe is incredible!
