Default Cleaning after Elmers Glue method

Just curious if anyone has had their machine cleaned after using the elmers glue method of basting. I was wondering if the glue gets into your machine by using this. I would love to try it but I'm a little hesitant because of this - thanks.

I've never had a problem after glue basting. The glue is dry by the time I quilt so I don't have any residue.

My machine had no problems with it. Like gramajo says, it is dry when you quilt and it doesn't seem to gum up the needle or anything else.

It's the same as sewing with fusible fabric.

I have no problems with glue residue as it is dry when I am quilting through it. And since it is contained inside the sandwich, there is no way for it to go anywhere!

Only thing my machine had in it was lint - lots of lint!

If you sewed while the glue is wet you might have an issue! If you let it dry, shouldn't be any problems

I didn't have an trouble sewing through the dry glue. The quilt wil definitely need to be washed when I get the binding done. It feels like cornflakes in the sandwich.

I'm doing a practice quilt right now with the glue method and love it. First time for FMQ and using the glue method. Nothing moves and have not noticed any problem with my machine, but its a old Montgomery Wards. As long as you let the glue dry first, give it a try.
