Secure Stitch is an adhesive solution that's been designed to help you patch holes and tears in clothing or even alter the hems on pieces of clothing without a needle, thread or machine. Aside from using it on clothing, you should also be able to use it on various household items made of fabric, such as drapes and upholstery. Within each Secure Stitch set, you'll get three larger squirt bottles of the solution and two on-the-go bottles that you can carry with you.
The cost of Secure Stitch is $19.99 plus $5.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Secure Stitch by paying an extra fee of $0.00 for a total price of $25.98.

The Secure Stitch solution contains a nano-bond polymer that's capable of bonding the fibers of virtually any fabric together both tightly and permanently. Once you let it dry for a few minutes, any bond created by this solution can be expected to last through exposure to water, your washing machine, and your tumble-dryer.
Before you complete your first application of Secure Stitch, you'll need to decide which two pieces of fabric you want to fuse together with it. These could be two pieces of fabric on the same garment or item that have been torn apart or have an unwanted space between them for some other reason. The pieces of fabric you choose could also come from two different garments or items.
Next, you can apply your solution to the bottom piece of fabric that you're working with. If you're working with synthetic fabric, it's best to use the bottle in your set that's been specifically designed for synthetics. If not, you can use any of the other four bottles in the set. With the larger bottles, you'll need to squirt the solution on or use the applicator brush to help you, and with the smaller bottles, you can use the applicator brush that's built into each lid.
After you've applied your solution to the bottom piece of fabric, stick both pieces of fabric together and wait a few minutes for the solution to create a bond between the fibers of both pieces.
Once your wait is done, you can pick up your fabric item and go back to using it as you normally would. You can even put a piece of clothing or an accessory that you fixed with Secure Stitch back on your body, and wear it for the rest of the day.
Within each Secure Stitch set, you'll receive five bottles of the adhesive solution: two standard-sized ones for any type of fabric, a standard-sized one for synthetic fabric, and two travel-sized ones for any fabric. The travel-sized bottles are about the same size as tubes of mascara, while the larger bottles are about two and a half times that size. In each set, you'll get applicator brushes and two hem clips that will help you pin hems together without using needles. You'll also have the option of getting two sets at once if you think you'll need more supplies.
The all-fabric bottles in each set are compatible with, as their name suggests, virtually all types of fabric. This includes fabrics that are commonly considered delicate, such as lace and suede.
When a bond has been created by Secure Stitch and has dried, it'll no longer appear white but clear, so you'll hardly be able to see it when you look at an item you've fixed. As a result, the fabric items you've treated will still appear fairly new and attractive instead of looking old and mended.
This adhesive solution has been designed to stick to fabric only, which means that it won't stick to your skin while you're using it. If you choose to lay certain pieces of fabric out on a wooden, metal or plastic surface in order to make a repair or an alteration, it also won't stick to that. Therefore, if you can keep the solution off any clothing that you're not mending, you won't have a big mess to clean up after you're done your alterations or repairs.
Secure Stitch is great when you need to complete a clothing repair job quickly, such as when your pants split or your belt tears just before you enter your workplace. If you were to use a traditional needle and thread, fixing a rip might take you up to a half hour if you're inexperienced with sewing. On the other hand, you may be able to fix your pants, belt or another item of clothing in as little as five minutes with this adhesive solution. Then you'll be able to show up where you're needed on time, without looking unkempt.
You may also find this adhesive solution advantageous when you need to repair a children's toy, such as a doll or a stuffed bear that's made from fabric. Your child will be happy with how quickly they get their repaired toy back if it often takes you days to find the time to get out a needle and thread for mending purposes.
Since this solution will function as a sort of glue, you might also find it useful if you like doing crafts that involve connecting pieces of fabric together. You may find that Secure Stitch will create a secure bond between pieces of fabric more quickly and effectively than any sort of crafting glue can. Plus, it'll dry much more quickly than many other adhesives.
By using Secure Stitch as opposed to a needle and thread or a sewing machine, you'll be exposing yourself to less risk of injury. This solution involves no needles or anything that could pierce your skin, so there's no risk of bleeding when you use it. Furthermore, by using the hem clips included in each set instead of the needles commonly used to pin hems, you'll reduce your risk of pricking yourself even further. If you've got children who want an introduction to sewing, it'd probably be best to start them off with this adhesive as opposed to traditional methods.
When you're applying Secure Stitch to any piece of fabric, keep in mind that the solution is powerful and that you shouldn't use too much. One squirt from a larger bottle or one brush stroke from a smaller bottle will be enough for most repairs. If you apply the solution too liberally, you'll find that your bottles get used up much more quickly than they would be otherwise. If you don't use too much of the solution each time, you can expect the bottles in one set to last you through about 50 repairs.

I tried Secure Stitch on polyester curtains and not only did it seep through to the other side leaving a dark looking wet strip on the front side, but also did not stick at all. I read the instructions and followed them. I'm disappointed and quite angry that I have to buy another set of curtains, especially because the curtains are not cheap. Between the cost of ruined curtains and $20 for this product, I lost just over $60!

Never received the product! Ordered in November 2018, and this is May 2019! Still receiving excuses saying that they're back ordered, etc. Also, I was told that my shopping and handling wouldn't be charged! What a joke! At this point, I should be given a complimentary bottle!
