    I use the black 19" gossamer a lot as a table runner on 5ft round tables. It is the perfect size and disposable after the event. Easy to roll out and trim. The only complaint I have is that the black gossamer usually comes in a little thinner than the other colors. Wish it was a little darker with more texture. The black looks good with any other color as an accent. Especially with solid black napkins. I have cut this in half using a rotary cutter on a cutting board to use on the 8ft banquet tables - it's the perfect size at 9.5" wide. And very economical.

    I have a roll of the "Hollywood" printed gossamer that I used to make a sample cover for a metal folding chair for a graduation party. The chairs at the venue have green stenciled letters on the backs so we needed something dark & thick enough to conceal the letters. The black on the Hollywood gossamer was very dark & worked perfectly, but that is not our theme so I ordered the enough solid black based on the performance of my sample to cover 308 chairs. I was very happy with my ordering experience, but so disappointed when I tried the solid black on the chair. It was so sheer that you can barely tell the color & it definitely will not hide the ugly stencil lettering on the chairs. We will have to double the gossamer & only cover the top back of the chair versus the whole chair like we intended to do. Very versatile product that is easy to work with & easy to sew on sewing machine, but, sadly, not thick enough for our purpose. Also, tape does not stick to it very well.

      The Black Gossemer fabric is being used for a Church Lenten service to cover the Cross in the Sactuary on Good Friday. It will be a dramatic look, something we have never done before. Since the Gossemer fabric is light and transparent it is well suited for that purpose. Thank you again for the perfect product and service. I will keep you in mind for other purchases in the near future!

        Comments:

        This product turned out to be just what we needed. We needed to cover the walls of the stage to give it a together look and this worked wonders. We doubled it to make it more condensed. We also bunched it together some and it created an elegant look that was far better than we imagined. We were questioning if it would work well or not due to the thinness of the material but with the scrunching and the doubling it worked great!! I recommend buying 2-3 times more than what you think you will need. We used 100 yards to cover the back of a 40 foot stage. We made it 8 feet high then doubled over itself. We intend on buying more of this product!

              I will be using the fabric for a stage backdrop. Also I have a number of tables, large and small, that will need covers. This is the perfect fabric for the occasion.

                First off let me say that I wish I had know about this material a long time ago. I could have used this in so many cool ways. I love, love, love gossamer. It was super easy to use, and it added just the right amount of color. We made bows, swags, window covers, and so much more with it. The excellent value can't be beat. I bought a hundred yards and it went a long way.

                      I recently chaired a high school prom with another mom who decorates for lots of galas. She had left over gossamer from another event but not enough. When the new gossamer arrived we noticed how much more sturdy it was compared to the other she had. It didn't shred, it was thicker, sturdy and easy to use. We stapled it around a wood column covered in lights and it never tore or came undone with handling and moving. A great product.

                          Used this as part of the decorations for a school fundraising event. Used three different colors to covered up the white walls of the facility. Hung white Christmas lights down each line from top railing to the floor, very festive for little cost. HINT: Use straight pins or staples instead of tape to hold the fabric in place!

                                this gossamer has two sides one black and one silvery gray. That really makes a difference

                                  We threw a "John's Got the 60 Year Old Blues, Brother! birthday party. Turned a hall into a smoke filled speakeasy using a Blues Brother's/Gangster theme. Along with two other gossamers, we created curtains to give a hall another dimension. We used a fog machine to create a great backdrop for a fun party.

                                    I used it to make curtains for a halloween party to hang from a booth. It was inexpensive and quality enough I could rum it through the sewing machine. Give great impact for a themed party.

                                            We used this as a drape to cover our stage and runway for a pageant we did. It is very durable and holds up well. It also layers very easily. I love that it isn't see through. I also love that it is so durable that we were able to save it to be reused again for future pageants if we choose to. I didn't find any fault with this product. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to decorate anything from weddings down to birthday parties. It is really a great product. I will order it again.

                                              Utilized to cover walls in a prom setting, with lights behind it. The theme was a night under the stars, so it concealed all the lights we put up, and as they twinkled, it looked as a night sky.

                                                  No it would not be able to be reused over and over. This is a 1 time use product.

                                                Is this product specifically the black see through or not? I am having a party in a shop and want to create faux walls to hide the shelves etc. One review said it was see through one said it was not and the description doesn't address this feature. Help....

                                                Help! I have to decorate tall (gym) cinderblock walls, I can't reach the ceiling so maybe hanging 8-10 ft lengths? I can't put hooks in the wall so would need to use tape, I guess. Would that work? Masking tape strong enough? Thanks --

                                                  I would guess you would need to use duct tape if it is cinderblock.

                                                I am trying to determine whether to use tulle or gossamer for decorating for prom. We will be using the fabric and lights to cover the wall. Which is our best buy?

                                                  I think that you will find that gossamer will work best for your needs.
