Leaking Eisenglass panel in Bimini

Have a small but annoying leak (of course - drips right on to my head while standing at the wheel) Any quick fix ideas for this short of a complete re-do or - "hey dummy, don;t stand there") ? The panel is really important to look up the mast and at the sail trim

Bees wax on both sides of the stitching worked well for me however some spots where the stitching is lose I had to used clear silicon. Going on three years now, so far so good

I did all the above and then used liquid whipping tape and for a plexiglass window that we replaced the eisenglass window with four years ago I used 3M 5200 as a temporary fix. I’ve touched that up with some 4200 around the edge for a minor drip. Amazingly its worked this long, the Bimini is made with ‘New Shelter’ not Sunbrella. It’s only temporary, unless it works.
