    I have not used these yet, but they look as if they should work.

    Looks like the ones I have used for about 3 years. The tips on mine do NOT screw onto the bottles and with heavy squeezing will pop off. However, I use some tape to secure tip to bottle. When done, remove the tape, apply the original plastic top and then soak the tip in water to remove the glue and then dry. Or, if not wanting to wash each time, I use the smallest tip, secure it with tape and when finished, I stick a pin in the tip and stand upright. This way the tip will not clog with dried glue.

    Does anyone on this board know where these can purchased in Canada? When I opened the link overstock.com will not ship this product to Canada? I knew you couldn't get aerosol cans across the border but can't see why they won't ship these bottles & tips. Can anyone help with this please & thank you.

    I use Roxannes glue baste it and love it. Don't know how I sewed without it all these years. I was worried about the needle tip clogging up. SO far it has been fine. I never remove the needle and have left it sit, with the lid on of course for over a month with good success. Occasionally it seems a little stiff and I just stick a pin down the needle and it is fine. It pretty much sticks and dries instantly. It doesn't gum up the needle or anything. I was thinking of trying to refill the bottle with Elmers school glue when it is empty. It lasts a long time. If the refilling doesn't work this is one of those products that I feel is worth the money. It is a little pricey but like I said it lasts a long time.

    How did you find out that Overstock will not ship this item to Canada? I couldn't find anything about that on the item's description. I found this page on placing an international order:
    https://help.overstock.com/app/answe...il/a_id/1505#3

    Oops. Sorry! I went and did a little more digging and got that message. Also got that message on the Miracle Chalk markers kit.

    Can you order Roxanne's Glue Baste It from Amazon? That comes with a needle nose metal tip (that might even be better), and you can refill the bottle with Elmer's. Here is a link to it in the U.S.:

    Be sure to enter your email so you are notified when they are in stock again. That's what I did when I first ran across them and they were sold out. It took a few weeks, but they did email me and I ordered before posting here.

    They are out of stock already. They asked to leave my email, so maybe they still can be purchased, at a later date.

    I purchased this exact same thing at my local Michale's store for the same price. They had several in stock.

    Before they sold out a message in very small print comes up on the screen (in red I believe) that says that this product will not be shipped internationally. Too bad because I would really like to get some. I keep checking Michaels here but none so far.

    Take a bottle of Elmer's School Glue and pop the orange top off. There should be a white plastic post...cut it off with a scissors. Cut a scant 1/4" off the top of the orange cap. Now get a disposable mechanical pencil. Find one with a narrow tip. Screw the tip off the pencil and insert it up inside of the orange tip until it's snug. Viola! Now you have a nice glue tip. I insert a pin through the top to keep it from drying out. :O)

    I checked too late, although I have found the same item here.
