    I also like the 1/4 " ribbon. I get my spools at JoAnn's on sale. They have specials often enough that I can usually wait for the next one. Then the price is 3 or 4 spools for a dollar. Sign up to get on their free mailing list for advance notice of sales.

    Well, spools go for a lot more than that around here. And chainette by the yard is even more.

    I look around and buy all over to get good color variety. WalMart has it for about 44cents. I got some at Hobby Lobby for 25cents. Joanne's has it on sale every once in awhile 33cents, I think. I'll even buy some for 55 cents at my local Alco if I like the color.

    Dat1NdnGuy: Thanks, I think I'll check out mjtrim.com. I'm looking for single faced ribbon for ribbon shirts.

    Ribbon and Ribbon. Doesn't snag or fade as easy as chainette. Cheaper, and faster to put on. Shows nice colors, too.

    But I'm tieing on chainette for the shawl I'm gonna make for my mother. I think I like chainette better for traditional dancer's shawls.

    Shawl Fringe

    I Love Ribbon, because it's easy to wash and it lays nice and flat...but for tradish outfitits, flat fringe is nice too...it's a little mroe expensive, but nice. Ribbon is my choice cause you can add lots of nice colors, without overdoing it, and it's nice and full when spinning...hard to get good ribbon though..1/4" for good colors anyhow...just my opinion! :)

    I think ribbon is a lot better than chainette. You get to put as many colors as you want and the shawl looks so full and pretty.

    No this isn't a question from me, lol. I'm just seeing what everybody thinks about this. Do you prefer ribbon fringe or shawl fringe on your shawls? Do you do all 4 sides or just 2 sides?
