    Hi,

    Anyone on here from NC? I'm having a hard time finding any stores in the Raleigh, NC area that carry the 505 adhesive spray.

    Have you tried the June Tailor? It comes in a blue can and I get it at Walmarts for around $8. I have used both and June Tailor really last well; does not gunk up your needle. I used the 505 once and it didn't hold as well but my teacher said I might of not used enough so I'm not slamming it since my experience could be chalked up to human error.

    Sometimes JoAnns Online will have it. I bought a bunch in January because they had it half off.

    Thanks for the replies.
    Sew For Less wants to charge me $10.08 for shipping.
    Walmart online tells items cannot be delivered to some locations due to carrier restrictions and to remove it or ship to another address.

    What other spray adhesives have others user?
    Romanojg I will have to look for the June Tailor spray.
    Also, what starch do folks recommend?

    I have tried several different basting sprays. I won't use anything but the 505. try JoAnns.com. (or whatever their "address" is)

    You might be able to use a coupon to get some. I don't see it on special sale at the moment.

    Order it on Connecting Threads website, they usually have great prices too.
    Best Press is a little too pricey for some; but it is a wonderful starch and comes in different scents. I use it all the time for quilting.

    I've had really bad luck with the Dritz spray. Way too sticky and seems thicker than 505. I can usually buy 505 at Hancocks or Hobby Lobby. It's made by Sulky so anywhere they carries that brand may have it. I agree, shipping is outrageous unless you have to drive far to find a store.

    I also get it on Sew for Less...I ordered 3 cans to make it worth the shipping, plus they are the larger cans...I tried some others, but won't use anything but the 505 now...

    Me, too. At $13.49 for a 17 oz can you can't beat it! Many stores, if they carry it at all, no longer carry the large. Oh, or is it the small?

    Anyway, used to use June Tailor, but did not really hold well.
