    505 Basting Spray, where do you buy yours??

    I have not been able to find this basting spray in my small town. I have looked at WM, Kmart and both my LQS and none of them carry it. It did find some on eBay with decent shipping. What is the average price everyone is paying. TIA

    I got mine from Joann's online when they had a bib sale. Might have been Black Friday. I think I got 6 cans and with shipping it wasnt that much and coupon too!

    I found on at Walmart - it is Dritz Basting Spray. It was about $8 for the 10oz can. HTH

    BTW I have used it for both machine and hand quilting.

    I bought that, used it on a table runner. Gummed up my needles on my sewing machine. I had to wash the table runner and I'm still having problems with it. Not going to use that stuff any more.

    The first spray I tried was Dritz. I didn't have any problem with it. I used a very thin layer and it worked fine. I didn't have any problem with it getting my needle sticky. The reason I used Dritz is that I found it in my cupboard--I had forgotten that I had it. The only complaint I had was that it didn't last long enough. I think it did one quilt and 1/2 of another. They weren't real big quilts--maybe lap sized. It wasn't real expensive either.

    I prefer 505 to other brands of basting spray, and it's difficult to find in my area (although I can find other brands at Walmart, JoAnn's, etc.). So last time I ordered from this website:
    http://www.sewforless.com/item/505_T...OUND_ONLY/7391

    It's worth the shipping to get a couple of cans of this at a time.

    Be aware that there are 2 different sizes of 505. The one at the link is the large size can -- will do probably 3 queen size quilts. The only difference between the yellow can and the red can is that the red can is manufactured in Europe; contents are the same.

    You can order this on line at Walmart and have it shipped to the store. When you do it that way, there is no shipping charge. I have done this, plus from Joanne's when there was free shipping. For some reason, there aren't a lot of places that have it available just off the shelf. It's annoying because I think this is really the best spray going.

    I have had much better results with 505 and have only seen it at one of our LQS. Good to know fabric.com may have it.

    I also use Dritz.....it has never gummed up my needle or given me any problems....you only need a light spray to get a secure hold and it washes out well....$8 at WalMart and no shipping!

    I've seen it at Connecting Threads; don't remember the price.
