Am I the last person in North America to get a serger? I've been doing fine these last 50 years without one, and I have been happily using up a product called Stitch Witchery that WAS NOT a iron on glue-thing, but a 5/8" bias nylon tape that covered raw seam edges very nicely. Today I ran out and the girl at the fabric store (who looked about 12) told me that there was no such thing as the tape I was describing! I have some in my hand, and I was just wondering if ANYBODY knows where I can get some? I just want to cover some ravelly raw edges of a decorative linen fabric, and I don't have a serger. The older notions clerk at a bigger fabric store knew what I was talking about (!), but she said she hadn[t seen any in years. Ok, I now admit to keeping a handy item in my sewing basket for years. But, I liked it! And I want to keep using it. Is this going to cast me hundreds of dollars just to cover a raw seam edge? What does one do if one is scared of sergers? I'll promise to learn more about them, if I can just get a couple yards of the old-fashioned Stitch Witchery! Anybody got any idea?
