Need Some Wisdom

A thread in my fabric (on Venetian Opulence) got cut some how. It's just one thread, but it's in a spot where it's not going to be covered with stitching and it's not going to be covered by the mat. It's too close to the actual stitching. So far it's not doing anything. Just sitting there behaving. Is there any kind of glue or something that I could apply to the back to keep the threads in place? I was considering some acid free tape, just a little piece. I don't know, any ideas?

Oh my! That's very bad luck.

Maybe one minute glue? Watch your fingers!

This depends on whether you have already stitched in the same row, but you could pull the entire row of thread out & very carefully run a thread taken from the top or bottom into it's place. This worked for me when I cut in the wrong place on a drawn thread piece.

Fray Check. http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp?CATID=cat2864&PRODID=prd2992

I love this stuff.

Perhaps fusible interfacing on the back would hold it in place? I think that would work best if your fabric has a tight weave.

I agree with Claire, try the fray check, it really good stuf.
