    I have been reading some about this here. I really don't like basting. Where do you use this in your house? I have a large family room but I really don't have any where outside to use this. I am thinking of getting some, how is the smell and if I open the patio door will that help?

    Smell is not bad. Disappears quickly. By all means open the door fresh air always smell better.

    Smell is very slight and only while spraying. Goes almost immediately.

    I used "Dritz" spray adhesive. I put newspapers around my design wall in case I over sprayed. I found that I didn't need the newspaper. I have respiratory problems, but didn't with the spray. I did use it lightly and didn't have any problems. Good luck. I am sold on the spray adhesive--no more pins for me!!!

    Opening a door will help but the smell doesn't last that long. I put a large bed sheet on the floor to catch the over spray from the 505 spray baste. I have had no problems with using the spray except the floor gets sticky..thats why I use the bed sheet under it.

    Wow thanks. Thanks Mamagus for the link to the thread I would have never thought to use the wall. I have a wall in my sewing room that will work for most quilts and I can crack the window and turn on the ceiling fan. I have arthritis in both my knees so getting on the floor and crawling around is not pleasant. Also (I don't like using the word hate) but I hate pinning and usually don't use enough and get impatient with that part of the process. So if this works I will be very grateful to you all..indebted is more like it. I will let you know how it works.

    What do you clean the oversray with? And do you have any issues with the needle gumming up?

    I have birds in my house and I use it in the living room with the windows and door open and it doesn't bother them.
