With about 40 sequined costumes still left to sew for a dance school, you have just saved me a case of alcohol and paper towels! Thank you so much!

Thanks for the tip, Ann. I just bought a piece of this to make an evening bag. I didn't even think about glue problems. Does this mean it's ok to sew through the sequins? I figured I'd have to remove any in the way, when stitching the seams.

I have been fighting with this stuff for years. I am so glad I came across this review. I am so happy to be a member now. I know I definitely have a place to really get down to the nitty gritty of sewing issues. Thanks ever so much!!!!

I got two large pieces of something that seems similar but that has closely spaced rectangles instead of dots in my two Fabric Mart mystery bundles. Not sure what to do with it all, but at least this tip will help when I find out!

I wish I had this tips two years ago. I tried to make a top for New Year's Eve. I eventually got it done, but had to clean the needle every other stitch it seemed!

I totally disagree. I tried doing this just last night while trying to sew my Christmas tree skirt. I tried wax paper on just the top, in between the layers of fabric and even underneath. Nothing worked and eventually the needled ended up gumming up and ruining my project. I don't know how people work with this fabric, honestly.

Thanks for the tip. I have never made anything from this fabric but I have a grandaughter in dance and I want to make her something (or at least try). I am researching on how to sew the costumes. Thanks again Greta(

I joined this website just so I could leave you a HUGE thank you for this post. I just tried it on some of the glued-on sequined fabric. Before the waxed paper trick, I could only sew about 10 inches before the needle got gunked up and the seam simply didn't sew together. After waxed paper, I sewed two 40" seams beautifully! The paper just tears right off. Thanks SO MUCH! We have a concert coming up and I was tearing my hair out trying to figure out how to sew 3 sequined blouses. Thank you thank you thank you!

I sooooo wish I had found this before I tried making a costume for the neighbor's little girl - glad to know I'm not the only one that had a problem with this fabric
