    I was thinking about going to Hobby Lobby to get paint tips for my Elmer's glue to try binding the way Sharon Schambler does. I don't live close to HL and I was wishing there was a little craft store in this po-dunk town when the thought of Motts drifted to my mind. I remember being a kid and saving my money to go shop at Motts. I use to buy my mom and dad their Christmas gifts there and every summer before leaving for vacation I would have my mom take me to Motts and I would buy me a pair of sunglasses and a black and red plastic wallet to keep the rest of my money in. I don't know how many of those wallets I bought, but I always bought the same one....feeling old now.

    Motts? lol

    I thought you meant the apple juice! It must be a regional store.

    As for your glue tips, I just use the tip that is on the bottle at the smallest opening. You can get a pretty fine line if you practice. But, I do wash everything, though, so I am not super worried if the glue is a little thicker than I would like since it washes out.

    We had Mott's, but it was a Shop Rite grocery store chain. I don't remember if they carried sunglasses or change purses. They've been gone for many years now.

    Good luck with your binding.
