    I just bought it a few days before christmas so I don't know how long hancock fabrics had it. And as for it being stored I don' think my room is that cold or too hot. Who knows at least with a little picking at it with a pin I am able to take it off. I thought that I might have to go out and get more. It works for now.
    Thanks everyone.

    I think the fusible preference among quilters is similar to whether you prefer Cain's or Hellman's or Miracle Whip on your sandwich.

    The post about using a pin to score the backing is a good one. I have used Wonder Under for over 20 years and scoring with a pin point is what I have always done.

    I agree, Steam-a-Seam is the best!

    Just don't score the paper close to the edge, it will cause fraying of the fabric :wink: :D:D:D

    I too have had this happen. If the piece is small stick it in the freezer for about 1/2 hour. Then immediatley pull the paper off.

    This has happened to me, as well. I think it gets damp, or something, in shipping or storage. Anyway, one thing that always helps me is to let it sit after pressing it on the fabric. Sometimes I press it on one day and then don't go back to it till the next day. That seems to help. Good luck!
