    My sister was making something other then a quilt. She called me and asked me what to do with fleece that keeps
    stretching while sewing , She was using this for a backing for some Chaps she was making for her son.

    Any way I told her to go and buy spray Glue. She went to wall mart and saw the price of spary glue... (now this is my sister knowing alot about cars.) She called me back, and said to went to the automotive store and bought what they call glue spray for the inside of your care overhead liner. (This is for the inside of your car when the top of your ceiling comes down and hits you in the head)
    It is the same as glue spray for 1/4 of the price. I think she
    said she paid $3.00- $4.00 for a large can.
    I told her I would pass this on. same product for 1/4 of the cost.

    I will keep this in mind, if I ever need spray glue. What would you use it for exactly?

    Yikes!!! Most likely *not* the same product used for quilts! Basting spray used in quilts is water-soluble; I doubt that car glue is. It might work well for your sister's application, but I would not want permanent glue in any of the quilts I make -- especially with the outgassing that can occur.

    Please keep us posted about the gumming up of her needles (or not)& if the can says water soluable so we'd know if it's easy to clean up. This could be a great savings for us if all is good with that spray!!!!
