    Is there such a thing? I did a table cloth with oak leaves appliqued on. It was done with a satin stitch and the material has come apart in some spots. Don't want to spoil it by sewing over it again so hence the question of glue for material.

    Yes there is. One brand is API Fabric Glue and another I have is Aleene's Ok to Wash-it fabric bond. Hope this helps you.

    Sharon Schamber uses Liquid Stitch..according to the tube it becomes permanate after 24 hrs. I'm always too impatient to wait that long...but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    You can use the glue just make sure it is the type that dries flexible. Or tuck some stitch witchery under those pieces and iron them back down :D:D:D
