The chalkboard and magnetic paints work beautifully, I don't know about the dry erase kind. We have the chalkboard paint in my house and I've seen the magnetic paint at Ikea. I wonder how strong the magnetic paint is though? It can keep the small alphabet magnets and the regular 'fridge magnets up but I'm not sure how well it would work wit anything bigger.

I painted a wall in my daughter's room with magnetic paint. The magnetic particles are rather lumpy, and it really doesn't hold very well. I don't know if it's operator error, but I wasn't overly happy with the results. We're going to have to do some serious sanding of that wall whenever we go to repaint.

I'll have to think of some great products for people to try out. What fun!

Aww man. I'm sorry to hear that rackycoo! It was a very small space that they had painted, about the size of a picture frame, maybe that hid some of the imperfections with the product.

I would love to get a review of the printable fabric too. I've been dying to try it but I think you have to have an inkjet printer?

Here's a link. I know they sell it on Amazon and probably on ebay too.

I think it might also be nice to have some crafty newbies (like an FOC whose specialty is another type of craft) try out some existing products...  Like I'm sure there are people who have done punch embroidery forever now, but how easy is it for a noob to pick it up and run with it?  I know that making the photo jewelry is a kit you can buy (and has been around), but I have never done anything like that.  I always wonder about those kits...  are there only enough supplies included to do it perfectly the first time?  Or can you make a few mistakes and not run out?  I really wonder about the learning curve of a craft.

What I'd like to know if it works, but I doubt anyone is brave enough to try is the "microwave kilns" I've seen around. Can I really fuse glass in my microwave without spending $500+ for a countertop kiln? And if so, will I break my microwave? And I rent, so burning down my apartment would be bad.

Still...it's very tempting and I'm HIGHLY curious about it. So I'll through the suggestion out there.

I would love to see reviews of different printable fabric sheets too!! I've used two kinds so far, EQ printables (http://softexpressions.com/software/eq/PrintablesFab.php) and miracle sheets (http://softexpressions.com/software/notions/miracleFab.php) and there are huge differences in the quality! Would love to see other similar products tested too. I would especially like to see a test on how well the color holds after washing, because I never washed the things I made with the sheets.

ETA: These site has some other brands of printer fabric sheets: http://www.quiltknit.com/notions/printer_fabric.htm

I would love to see a review of Bernina My Label Pattern software (http://www.berninamylabel.com/) or any other pattern drafting software that is out there.

This is a big ticket one, but I've always wanted to learn more about the Cricut systems - http://www.cricut.com/default.aspx.  They are a massive investment, and I would like to know how well they work and how useful they are from folks other than their marketers.  I've considered buying one, but I'm not sure if they are worth the money.

This is a great idea Smiley

I'd love to hear some reviews of interchangeable knitting needles. I've come across a couple different sets, and I wonder which one actually works the best/ are always preferable to buying one-size needles.

Here's one kind:
