    i used to get my basting spray at wal mart, they no longer have fabric in my area. i went to jo ann's and it was 15 bucks, is that what it costs now, this was a different brand than i used before (the old stuff i had came in a big can like hairspray, the expensive was in a little can, like mousse). just need to now if i have to bite the bullet or am i not looking far enough

    most walmarts that don't have fabric still have notions and batting, that's where i still find the basting spray, also at hancock's and joann's they carry the cheaper stuff

    I use 3M Super 77 Multipurpose Adhesive, a fellow quilter tipped me off on it. Its a big can and a lot cheaper. I can't remember the price, get it in the Automotive stuff at Walmart. I haven't had any trouble with it, no gumming up the needle ect.

    what I got a walmart is "quilt basting spray" !! says so on the can. AT JoAnn's I got the 505, and at quilt shops. The 505 I like better r/t the gumming of the needle. But both work. 505 is more costly.

    That's because the red cans are made in France and the yellow/blue ones are made in the UK. Still the same product from what I can tell, only cheaper.

    thisis the one product I always use my 40 percent off coupon.
    Once in a while they have the notions wall for 50 percent off and I by a few cans then ... but every time I have to "discuss" getting the 50 percent off with the staff, as they always try to say its not a notion.... but then I say .. but you have it on the "notions wall" . Anyway they do give it to me for the 50 percent off.

    yes it is cheaper, but does not wash out :wink: Be sure and spray on scraps first, as it does cause a problem with some fabrics :D:D:D
