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!

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

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

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!

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