Default Michael's ribbon quality?

I've been using Offray ribbon for korkers. Not too long ago I got some Michael's ribbon "Celebrate It" brand, and it felt cheaper, but I decided to make some korkers out of it anyways. After I baked it, the black ribbon left a spiral stain around the dowels (just where the thicker edjes of the ribbon were). Now I am really wondering about the quality. Anyone's been using it long enough to judge how it holds up?

I've never used it for korkers. I use it when I have that "itch" when I see super cute ribbon and I have to have it!

I had the same issue. I haven't had any other issues with the other colors except of black. I also noticed it left black on my fingers when I was wrapping it.

Don't use it for korkers for sure and I rarely use it for anything else...

I don't really care for the quality of some of the ribbons from Michaels. I bought some of the glitter ribbon and it was soooooo bad, the ribbon was thin and most of the glitter rubbed off before I could finish lining one clip never again

just for their plain grosgrain, it isn't very stiff at all. the bows just seem kinda "floppy" to me. I like some of their stuff, but I usually just order from RABOM or TRR.
