fiber etch where to find

JeanE's picture

I was reading in the craft stylish magazine about fiber etch and was intrigued.  I went looking at Michael's, Joann, walmart, and other places.  Are there any places that might carry this besides the internet.  I would rather pay store prices than order and pay shipping.  My head simply filled with ideas.  The article is on page 56 of the new issue volume IV, entitled:Quick Stuff to Sew.


I would apreciate any suggestions.  I live in Independence, KY or more to the point, Northern Kentucky just south of Cincinnatti, Ohio.

I can't help you about finding the fibre etch. I found some in a Stretch-and-Sew store but I am about 2300 miles north of you! I tried it out, haven't really done anything artistic with it yet but it seems to work on mid-weight cotton denim.

I first saw this demonstrated at a Bernina Club and they sold it in the shop.  It might be something quilt stores would stock.  As I recall it only works on natural fibers not polyester, etc. so JoAnn's might not be interested.  It was being used to remove the fabric in machine cutwork and seemed to work like a charm, but I never got into that area.

JeanE --

Here are the results from my Google query "fibre etch": http://tinyurl.com/bkuhvb

I didn't look at all of them, but the wwwearables at the bottom of the page was an interesting site to me, and it also had a video of the use of the product.

Additionally, I believe I've seen that product on Nancy's Notions site and maybe Clotilde's.

Good luck in your search and with your project. I think this would be a fun product to play with.

This message goes to all of you that have responded to my search for fiber etch. 


I looked at the web site, but I really want to try get it at some kind of store if I can.  I am going to try the quilt shopes.


I really cannot do much looking right now however, We are SNOWED IN.   I live in Northern Kentucky just south of Cincinnati.  We are not going anywhere for a while.  At 71 you don't go out on ice.


I will try my hand at pictures when I can get this stuff and make the little outfit for my granddaughter.


Thank you all for your help.

Hope you stay warm and cozy inside until the weather clears!  Good luck on your search and I look forward to seeing pictures too!  I've wanted to try fiber etch myself, just haven't gotten a "round tuit". 


I'd try calling the hobby stores too, do you have Michael's or Hobby Lobby?  Or possibly as you mentioned the quilt stores, even sewing machine dealers might have it.

Hi JeanE,


I got my FiberEtch for that article at http://www.silkpaint.com/


One bottle will last quite a while.


My best advice is to make the smallest hole possible at the top of the bottle for application. I nipped away at my first bottle a little too much and made a mess, so be careful!


Have fun! and be sure and post your results in the Reader's Closet! I'd love to see what you come up with.
