In My Own Words:
My two great loves are books and music. Seriously, I read too much, it is probably unhealthy.

Books (real books, printed, hardbacks and paperbacks) and… Kindle (for those heavy tomes), music (i.e. listening to it, sadly, not creating), googling things, travelling, cooking, exotic locations, reading, doing arty things (arts and crafts and goin… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed., 18 Aug 2014
First things first: this is a product for MEN.

In any case, I found the books… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful little thing., 11 Aug 2014
Used it to seal raw edges and it did the job on the silk, velvet and satin ribbons.

I would recommend for anyone looking to use to stop fray, but beware, it has a tendency to spread and stain just a tiny bit on more delicate fabrics, such as thin silk. And very occasionally the thinnest fabric continues to fray and needs re-applying of the product in double layers, making them stiff.
