    well my goodness....that is so interesting...I had no idea, where do you buy it ?????? does it come in a package or on a bolt like interfacing.........so you can iron it on to fabric, then iron it again, sew the edge and then wash and all the stifness disapears ?????
    Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons

    I used steam a seam lite and my long armer had no problem quilting through it - mountains, trees, lake, cabin, etc. She did an excellent job - in fact, it won first in its category at our quilt show.

    I don't think that even Solvy has an iron-on fusible that washes away. They have iron-on fusibles, and they have wash-away fusibles, but not one that is both. I think. If I'm wrong, someone *please* post a link!

    I've sewn through three layers of Wonder Under by hand, can't imagine a longarm having problems. Washing a fused, unquilted top, however, raises the risk of loosening (and fraying) the edges of the fused pieces.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    I agree with those who say no washing before...distortion is not pretty.
    I use fusibles and never had a problem at the quilters. Hope you find out soon anf let us know how it came out. I imagine it will be fine.

    I've never had Wonder Under or Heat and Bond Lite go away when they were washed. I find the H & B a little softer than the WU.

    Is the wash away Solvy a *stabilizer* by any chance? There is a difference in stabilizer and fusible web. Fusible *web* does not generally wash away

    Ok I finally found my package. It's not Solvy, it's (oddly enough) C&T Publishing. 25 sheets, printable, water-soluble, single-sided fusible. The package says $15.95, I can't remember where I got it or how much I actually paid. I have not personally tried it yet, I plan to use it for an applique project that is next in line. However, I have a friend who used it for a hand-embroidered quilt she made and she demonstrated a sample of it for our group - she printed it, sewed it, dissolved it in a pan of water. Her project turned out beautiful and soft.
