    Have you used "Lapel Stick"?

    I just came across this glue stick and was wandering if anyone has used it and can make a comment on it.

    here's the website I found with it; http://www.patsythompsondesigns.com/...t/lapel-stick/

    I ordered a PP kit from Missouri Quilt Co. and it came with the kit. Seems to be ok, but my personal favorite is Dritz fabric glue stick.

    It was reviewed in Maria Elkins' 'Out of the Toolbox' column in the April/May 2012 issue of Quilting Arts. She made an entire 24"x24" quilt using it as many ways as she could in one piece.

    Included were raw edge and traditional appliqué; matching stripes; keeping yarns, ribbons, and laces in place for couching; holding buttons in place for machine stitching; basting the three layers for quilting; holding the binding to the back side for hand stitching; and holding the sleeve and label in place for hand stitching. She also thinks it would work well for making piping and applying zippers, but hasn't tried them yet.

    She called her experiment a "terrific success" and used not a single pin or sliver of fusible to make the entire quilt. The manufacturer claims it's non-toxic and acid free, can be removed by washing, but has no long term effects if left in place (good to know for art quilts).

    Hope that helps.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    Wow ghostrider thanks for that information. Sounds like it will do almost anything that needs to be held in place. Since I don't really like all the sprays and the self stick stuff is way to expensive and gums up the machine, it's worth a try.
