I'd rather not bother with trying to sew organza, but I've been trying to come up with ideas for my centerpieces and table overlays. A fabric store by my house is closing and they have the perfect organza on markdown, has anyone used heat on this type of fabric? I'm not sure if it would melt or something. Also wondering if the stuff would get melty-gunky thru the organza, since it's not a tightly woven type of fabric.

Thanks for any info!

you could also try the glue type of stich witchery, some of my students used that last year on the quilt we made.
I agree I wouldn't want to sew organza.

I would think you can, but you'd have to be careful on the amount - and when you iron it, put something over it - like a tea towel, pillowcase, etc. just enough to keep the direct heat off.

Can you go and buy a quarter yard just to test it?

    well, don't hold your breath, as with most of my planning so far, it's gonna be a while until i have the money for all my projects. i'm having a feeling the last month of my timeline will be not so much filled with BDW playtime, but more so much filled with mad crazy bridezilla flurries i'll re-post if i do end up getting this project together, i'm wishing i could just find what i want, premade.

      Abbie, what kind of runners & size are you making? I was trying to decide if I wanted to do them.

      I know I will be buying fabric for my arch and chair sashes. We have similar colors and my wedding is before yours...see where I'm going with this?

      If I have anything you can use I'll be more than happy to pass it along.

      great idea!
      our tables (15 of them, plus a rectangle head table) are kind of oblong, big enough for 10 people at each. i have NO idea what size runners, i'm thinking at least 90" long, since the tables are about 60" long, and that would give some room for them to hang a bit off each side??

      what kind?? well, also they dont have to be long rectangle shape, i guess i was thinking along the lines to make big squares or something i could actually just place the centerpiece on top of or something. a runner would work just swell, tho.

      i'm so fried for ideas. i end up playing around on BDW instead of searching for inspiration
