    I bought a can of spray adhesive and it says on the directions to have all the doors and windows open. Are there any you can use inside in cold weather?

    Hmmm...I don't know what'cha got there, but I use 505, I'm not seeing that on the label anywhere, but I don't bother with the windows when I'm using it. But other things people have told me to vent the room and I usually forget to....hmmmm. My can does say to keep away from heat and I store it close to the heater vent....that's probably not good?? So maybe I'm not the best person to listen to on this one. lol :lol:

    Okay, I just got my latest can. This one is called 'Quilt Basting Spray' by June Tailor. It also says use in well ventilated room, but nothing about windows being open. I supose that any heated room would be ventilated, like with the cold air return on the furnace. I don't think using bursts of temp spray adhesive would be harmful, but do protect surounding area from the spray. I think any aerosol spray needs to be used in a well ventilated area. possibley due to the propellent. I think that the 505 is a pump spray, so may be a safer product. I would be curious if anyone else can enlighten us.

    I have used the quilt basting spray that also said to have all the windows and doors opened, but I forgot to open them. It said it smells bad. But I didn't think I could smell anything. But I also know that by law anything that might have a chemical odor to it must read that way. That's some of the things I have to deal with in my job. The EPA wants to protect us. But the only problem I had was it makes other thing in the room sticky. But it cleans up with soap and water. Be sure your sewing machine is not in the same room, or if it is to cover it up. Because it will gum up the insides.

    This was June Taylor.........it said to put out all flames also . I have enviromental allergies and breathing problems so I don't want to take a chance. I got this at walmart; I will check Joanns and see what they have. My problem seems to be getting the backing to stay flat. I've tried pins and basting ' :shock: doesn't do it for me.
    There must be a non toxic glue out there. A web of fusible woud work . Is there such a thing. If I put it through a paper shredder could I sprinkle it and press? Any ideas out there?

    If you have allergies or breathing problems or both, I doubt there is a spray that would be safe for you. However I am sure there are lots of ladies out there that can help you with the pinning and basting to get it flat. There is a method to our madness as far as how to do it and it does stay flat. I am not good at explaining things so I am going to step back to let someone else that is have a go at it. Hope this helps you.. Sorry couldn't tell you a name of a spray. I know its so much easier...

    There are fusible quilt battings available. I used one, Mountain Mist, on a large quilt and needed help to get it pressed. We put a couple blankets and towels down on pass through counter top. I suppose you could use dining room table or cutting table, just be sure to protect the surface from the heat of the iron. I am not a fan of poly batting, so will not use again. I have seen there is a cotton one now, maybe put out by Hobbs. You may need to check that out.

    I used this stuff on a quilt and will say I for one will never use it again. I have a small sewing area and I made a mess of my quilt. I guess one has to have a larger area then I do to lay out the quilt to iron it.

    Ruth, In reply to your question about quilt spray adhesive, I use the
    June taylor Quilt Basting Spray, all it directs to do is to use in a well
    ventilated area. I turn my ceiling fan on and that works great.
    [I leave the room once in awhile, JUST IN CASE!!]

    I spray starch and iron my backing fabric and it does stay pretty flat while I pin baste. Before the starching, I would get lots of puckers. I also spray starch and iron the quilt top and wash the whole thing when I'm done quilting and binding.
