    Not too long ago I read on one of the message boards I belong to (not sure if it was this one or another) about a product that would repair little tears or cuts made in fabric.

    Needless to say I would now like to look into that product since I just made a clip in some fabric I was trimming up. I don't have the site bookmarked any longer and can't remember of the name of the webpage or the product!

    If anyone knows of the product I would really appreciate some help finding it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the quick reply - This just might be the one I'm looking for. The product looks familiar, but not the web-page.

    Thank you so much

    Wow, that is interesting didn't know they had a product like that out on the market. I learn something new every day from this quilting board.

    Thanks for the link. How do you use the bonding product to repair a quilt? I have a queen size quilt I made at least 20 years ago that we used on our bed. When we took the bed down to have new carpeting installed my husband caught the quilt on the box spring and ripped one of the blocks badly. Since the quilt had been laundered and is faded I can't match the fabric to repair it.

    You just reminded me that I have some of this! I saw it demonstrated about 5 or 6 years ago at a sewing expo and bought some but I've never tried it. Guess I'll have to get it out and play with it. :oops:

    I'm interested in this thread; I have a couple of quilts from my great-grandmother and I have no idea what shape they're in...

    You need a non stick applique sheet or parchment paper to use this product. You sprinkle it on like salt, and heat set it with an iron.

    How Great - didn't expect so much interest in this item. I did a google search on the product and found several sites selling it. I even found the one I had previously bookmarked.

    I also found, on that search, a video of how to use the product. That was very informative too.

    FOR PAM S: I also read somewhere in my search, this product is supposed to have an expiration date. If you have had yours for 5 or 6 years, it may have lost its strength by now.

    The project I'm working on is a sweatshirt I'm converting into a jacket. I put an embroidery design on the front and when I was trimming away the stablizer I clipped the shirt. I'm thinking I will try using some of that two sided webbing that is heat activated to repair it before I go out and buy more stuff.

    I'm not sure how you would repair a ripped quilt block. I think you would need to place a small piece of fabric inside the quilt block so that it lays under the rip. Smooth everything out as best you can, sprinkle on the powder, cover it with a non-stick sheet and then press with your iron.
    Perhaps Stitchfancy could let you know where she saw the video, or maybe there is one on youtube.
