    What I was using was Aleene's Tacky Spray.

    It's a spray adhesive and says it's for fabric. But maybe it contains something the others don't. ??????

    Thanks for posting this, Sewbizgirl and also FelineFanatic about it traveling up the needle bar. It made a light bulb go off in my head. Every now and then I get threadlock problems in my embroidery machine, and it's common to use spray baste for that. It's part of many instructions for projects. What I now think is happening is that the gunk above the needle snags thread and when it recoils up above it gets caught. I'm definitely going to be taking preventive action. Never know what useful stuff I might pick up on this board, and I'm grateful to all who share information and advice!

    BTW, for quilting I've mostly weaned myself off the spray. I really like the method with long pins and ear plugs. Spray is expensive and I worry about prolonged exposure.

    From the Aleene's website there are 3 Tacky Sprays but only 1 for fabric and it is permanent. So definitely not the same as basting spray. I like 505 best - found a bargain on Dritz basting spray but I did not like quilting through it.
    Hope you can get the gunk off SBG!

    Definitely not a basting spray. All basting sprays will have baste or temp adhesive on the label and all wash out so water will remove basting spray if on your machine. I have tried the new basting powder and it's great. No spray!
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    ...... plus it is advertised as an adhesive,
    which to me, sounds much stronger adherence and a different chemical composition
    than a temporary basting spray.

    It's nice to seek out alternative products,
    but sometimes it is best to stay with those created for the intended use.

    I couldn't find the Un-Du at Walmart so I bought something else that looked as good. It's called Goof Off. It worked like magic! I just drizzled it on the sticky parts and then stuffed a little cotton swatch in to clean. All the junk came off. It seemed to dissolve the sticky stuff on contact, first try. Great stuff!

    So, I can quilt again! Thanks for your help with my problem, everyone who responded.

    I'll have to look for the Goo Off, haven't seen that before. I don't like Goo Gone, it stinks.

    Goof Off does a very good job on sticky stuff like tar, chewing gum, etc.
    But be warned, it stinks. LOL

    Yes! Goof Off has a very strong fume and is very flammable. You should try not to breathe it. But it worked wonders. I don't like Goo Gone because you have to scrub and scrub, and then do it again. It's not strong enough.

    UnDo is the best for anything stuck with adhesives. I asked a photo restorer to order me a big container of it.
