I had a hard time stitching the vinyl on a purse I was making. This wasn't a normal kind of vinyl. It is very thin. Too much handling totally destroys it. My needle kept skipping stitches. After almost becoming bald from pulling out my hair :-) I found a bottle of Sewers Aid and used that every few stitches. It worked great!

It's in a small bottle like Fray Check. It's probably silicone. Not sure tho.

I think I have seen this before and never paid it much attention. I can see that it could be very useful in certain situations. Thanks for the heads up!

how did you use it? On the thread, at the needle, on the vinyl?

Sandi, I put a drop on the needle as I sewed.
