    I've seen mention of Sewer's Aid on this board, and it's available in Joann's, but I'm not clear on what it is or what it's used for. I'm sure some of you know the answer! Thanks!

    Sewers Aid Lube is especially useful for the home sewer. Apply sparingly to spool and bobbin thread and your sewing tools to make machine sewing smoother ...
    i don't recommend it , its messy if your having any of the above problems maybe stop and find out why

    it is a thread conditioner. when a few drops are applied to a spool of thread it soaks into the thread and helps cut down on lint, tangles and fraying. (kind of like using bees wax) biggest difference between using it as apposed to using bees wax or a similar product is...
    wax does gum up, to a point, sewer's aide does not, also it is easy to use. does not change the color of the thread or leave any marks on your fabrics. can be used when machine sewing/quilting or hand work. works on any of the threads (except of course nylon/invisible threads and those types.
    is fairly inexpensive (compared to bees wax) and a little bottle goes a long way. you only use a few drops at a time.

    I use it ALL the time, it looks like oil but it NOT and does not stain, if you use a heavy thread it helps it glide more easily, I put it on all my bobbins, I feel it helps keep thing lubricated, on needles it helps them glide too and for hand sewing it helps keep the thread from tangling and it doesn't fray as fast (sometimes I bind with regular thread and it frays real quick.)

    I saw it used on a video somewhere. Then forgot about it. I'll bet it helps us in the high desert areas where EVERYTHING dries out!
