    Has anyone used 606 spray for applique

    I just saw this video on 606 spray for applique. Has anyone used this? do you like it?

    It states you do not have to sew if you use it...though I think I would want to.

    10 cans are you opening a store?
    The video is from the 2007 Quilt Show so it's been around a while. I'll wait for personal reviews but it does look like it would be a great product to use on many things in quilting and outside of quilting.

    I am making a circle quilt for my future daughter inlaw for Christmas and I was looking to see what applique technique I would use. this looks perfect...I hope...I am not going to sew the circle, but will do a FMQ'ing on the entire quilt. I hope it works as well as they claim. This was the first time I have heard of it...I do not want it to frey and it claims that it does not. Fingers crossed. I bought 10 cans since it was so cheap.

    I wonder what kind of texture it has. Will the applique be real stiff, or does it soften after being wash. I like my applique to be soft like the rest of the fabric.

    606 has been around for sometime, and no I haven't used it. It's a permanent adhesive, right?

    505 has been a quilters blessing for basting, so I'm sure 606 is every bit as good. However, I'd be hesitant in it being left without stitching for anything that's going to be used and laundered. If a a decorative item, it'd be the perfect no-stitch solution.

    I have looked for reviews and only found one...it was very positve. It is very strange that there is nothing out there for reviews. Not even on Amazon.

    Below is the 1 review from Joann.com for anyone interested. Sounds like JiffyFuse in a can.

    "I bought this product to use with my embroidery and decided to make my first fabric bowl instead. I used it to bond the fabric to the Timtex and it worked wonderfully. I use an empty flat box to spray so I can spray the whole piece and not get it on anything it shouldn't be sprayed on. It dries in minutes and can be fused by putting the iron to it for 5 seconds. Great product."

    I too had not heard of this and my biggest concern would be how stiff it leave the piece after fusing. If anyone tries it would you please let us all know about the stiffness after ironing? Thanks
