Oh, thank you for the suggestion! I will give it a try. We've been using FireLine for years (at the suggestion of another beading friend), but I'm always open to new crafting 'technology'!

I had a bead that kept fraying whatever Nymo etc. I used to repair it. Fire Mountain told me to buy Spider Wire Ultracast Invisibraid. I LOVE IT. it's actually a bit hard to cut with sharp scissors, knots well, and I am confident would be wonderful for sewing stuff onto shoes.

The shoes were a big hit at the workshop and made an excellent opportunity to tell everyone all about Sassy Feet!

WHY "GLITTER SWEATSHOP"?
As you might know, we invented a glitter glaze that works on leather, manmade leather and fabric. It comes with a bottle of paint base and a little packet of glitter. Now, someone has to open the big jars of glitter that come from the glitter elves and spoon just the right amount of each of the 21 colors into their packets. Being the head honcho, Margot is that someone. Problem is, she's not the tidiest person in the Western hemisphere and after 20 or so packets, there are a lot of microscopic (but fetchingly sparkly) particles of glitter in her hair, on her cheeks, and decorating her nose. One day someone came in during this process and remarked, "This place looks like a glitter sweatshop!"
