    Question Has anyone seen the Clear Elmer's School glue?

    I just returned from shopping and saw Clear Elmer's School Glue. I have used the white Elmer's school glue with binding a quilt.

    I was wondering if anyone had used the clear and if so what your results were.

    Beautiful day here in Phoenix, AZ - hope it is pretty where you are also.

    I've used it on several bindings and I really like it better than the white. Works the same so far as I can tell.

    I'll go looking for it. Sometimes you just can't find stuff here in town.

    I bought the clear some years ago and still have it. I can't tell any difference using it from the white in basting fabric together.
    Got fabric?

    Seems to me white would work better for me than clear -- easier to see where I've put the glue!

    I have used both and as far as I can tell they work the same. Never thought I would be glueing seams and applique when I began quilting. I also like to use it to baste small quilts.

    I dilute the glue with water just enough for it spread thinly. I use a one inch paint brush. It works great for a temp baste job for a larger area.

    I got the clear glue today. I will stick with the white. The clear seemed really runny to me.
