    I have the worst time with binding. I can't get it even on both sides. Any tips about the dual tip pen and how you use it to do binding would be appreciated.

    Yes!! That Elmer's Glue Pen is wonderful for binding and I also use it sometimes when piecing. And I now use the regular dispenser for basting. No more pins!!! YAY!

    I just bought 8 bottles at Dollar General (their brand) for 50 cents each. I store my glue stocks in a ziplock bag in the fridge. Think I heard of that on QB. So far, my glue sticks are still sticking.

    I have used a lot of glue in the past to stiffen crocheted angels. I got some for 48 cents a bottle. I made the comment to one of my teenagers that I should really quit drinking it. She was very quick to shush me. Can't take Mom anywhere.

    B-Rabbit, you are cracking me up!! I love Elmer's and will definitely look for this dual tip pen--it sounds really handy! I haven't seen the spray. Another thing to pick up cheap is notebook paper for piecing. A friend of mine says to get the cheapest because it is lightweight, tears off easily, and she uses the lines on the paper as a guide to keep her strips straight! Gonna try this for sure!
