Fasturn Tool has been around for quite a while. It was designed by a retired engineer right here in Southern Oregon. The company sold but is still owned by someone local and the tools are still being made in the US, I'm not sure if they're still made here or not though but am assuming so since they also have a nice fabric store and teach classes where they were manufacturing them before.
The kit I have has 6 sizes of tubes with accompanying thin wires. I sewed the lengthwise seam of my fabric and slid it over the metal tube. I then caught the end of the fabric with the thin wire which has a little curly cue at the top just for that purpose.
