I have looked for the glue to use when tucking the tails of finished knitted items that has been mentioned more than once on this Forum, but neither Michael's, JoAnn's, nor a private yarn store seem to know anything about it. And I don't remember the name, although I know there is one.

Can anyone help? Thanks a bunch.

Some times I think they have it, but finding it can be the problem (and the employees are not much help).

You will have to search in the fabric notions section of either store.

I too would like something like this, but can't seem to find it. I am also looking for a glue for crystal beads on clothing that stay put! I have used the ones that say "safe for washing" but the crystals still peel off. I was trying to copy a pattern on a garment I saw, but alas didn't come in talls.
Now the pants are ruined, I am out the cost of crystals, and I still don't have the garment I wanted.

I was recommended to Fray Check at Jo-anne's, but I haven't used it yet.

Why do you have to use glue on tails? I have been knitting for 50+ years and this is the first time I have heard of such a thing. If you weave in the tails in one direction and then turn and weave back down the next row, that makes it secure enough not to come loose in the wash. I don't understand the use of glue. Could someone explain this to me in a PM? Thanks.

Fray Check is in the fabric section of places like Jo-Ann's or Michael's.

I use it on cotton in my market bags. Not sure whether it holds up in such a stretchy fabric.

Fray Check is the armpit of these products. And it is not a glue. It leaves fabric stiff as plastic (that's what it is), very scratchy, and discolored. I won't even use it on the edges of embroidery cloth.

so what is your suggestion stitchdesigner. fray check is what is local and was recommended by a fashion person who sewed and desiged for many years.

I used Fray Check ONCE, which I purchased from JoAnn's.
But it is visible and hard when it dries.
I would figure another option, if I needed to do this sort of thing again!
Don't like it!

I found it on Amazon. Called Aleene's Fabric Fusion. There are others mentioned on the same page. Just open up Amazon and in the search box type in fabric fusion. Hope this will help you. Norita
