I came across some satin on sale for a bargin and snatched it. It's thick, shiny, a very deep violet color that may be too loud for everyday wear. But it screams to be a small bag and simple top for winter parties.

Well first I tried to damp a small corner last nite to test it. The tested area turned harder with water stain around the border but did not discolor in the center. I have never worked with this material and wonder if I should prewash, or not? There're always two schools of theory on this but I'd appreciate any suggestion on it. Thank you!

Sounds like your fabric isn't washable - it may be dry clean only.  So don't prewash.  And keep in mind when you're using the fabric that whatever you make can't be thrown in the washer.

Oh I guess the bag idea is okay then. The top... bummer... dry cleaning will cost 3 times more than the fabric itself. I think I'll cut a small piece and throw in the dryer next time I use my home dry cleaning kit and see if the fabric holds up well. Thanks for the reply.
