If you sew with a fabric that has glitter on it, you might find yourself with glitter glitter everywhere in your sewing room, on your clothes and on your skin. To tame this beast, spray your fabric with Scotchgard. It won't completely stop the shedding, but it will reduce it significantly. Always spray in a well-ventilated area (I do it on my back deck), and test on a swatch of fabric first. You can re-spray later if your glittery fabric starts molting again.
