  15. Does anyone know how to fix fine mesh material? I’ve got an expensive gown that I managed to snag and now a small hole I put my nail through on a mesh panel on some lingerie.

  16. I just finished knitting a lace shawl and noticing a hole in near the middle.

  18. Why can't we use an invisible thread??
