Are you actually talking about sequined fabrics or are you talking about the confetti fabric? I have a feeling you mean the latter. If you do I have seen that worked in to outfits quite a bit and have even helped with a dress using it. It is a pain in the butt to work with cause the shiny confetti dots are held to the fabric by an adhesive and that gums up your needle and breaks the thread regularly. It can also foul up the bobbin assembly and is almost impossible to get out of there. I cannot think of the name of it but there is a lubricant that you can get at the fabric stores that helps prevent the gumming up of the needle. Maybe someone else can help out with the name of it.

Goo Gone! is the only thing I know. Works for me. Smells like a orange/citrus blend. That's what I use.

Sewing thru paper helps. I like to lay a long receipt along the edge of the fabric and sew thru that. Then tear the paper off and reuse the larger part.

Just save all your payday receipts from WalMart.:p

And if you really look, you can find teflon needles.

the gals at joannes fabrics told me to
a) clean the needle with a cotton ball with rubbing alchohol..
b) put a little machine oil on the needle..just a little it don't need to drip off of it.. and it helps keep the glue from gumming on the needle.

My mom had a lot of problems with this. She tried the rubbing alcohol and several other things that didn't work.

We found this spray that's really cheap at the sewing store. Its liquid silicone in an aerosol can. Spray the fabric (won't stain it), the bobbin, and the needle. Then it sews like butter. I would mention the name, but I'm at school so I can't just open the closet and look lol.
