A Safe Way to Sew Beaded Fringe

submitted by Jane Tutton
from Threads #117

Beaded fringe can be tricky to sew into a seam by machine because if the fringe moves it’s easy to sew through a bead and break the needle. To keep the fringe in place, use a glue stick to secure the flange and painter’s blue low-tack tape to secure the fringe out of the way. This ensures that you won’t have to wrestle with the fringe to keep from breaking beads or needles when stitching blindly through two layers with the beads sandwiched in between.
