Google is your friend. There are many youtube videos showing how to do it with thread or wire. Take your pick.

Wire is faster and easier. I have a tutorial, if you are interested. Let me know and I will e-mail it to you.

there a several simple solutions to worn out skirt collars.
#1 don't buy jigs that are bound by a cheap piece of rubber
#2 use thin wire, thread or braid to tie the skirt above the worn out band then cut off the band
using something like a bread bag wire tie to collect the skirt strands on top and bottom will keep them out of the way while tying
#3 buy a vise, heads, and skirt material and tie your own jigs

#3 can get a little expensive but you can create jigs that match your needs perfectly, and you can find just about any shape jig head you want on the internet :D :D

id go with NJ Jigman's option #3.
initial cost will seem not worth it. but in the long run it will save you $$$. just buy a good vise straight out the door.
