    Hancock's Fabrics has a good one, and the one from WM is decent. both much cheaper than 505. Good Luck

    There was an earlier thread about this and some one said you can order it from Walmart.com. If you do site-to-store, you won't pay shipping charges, but it may take several days to get it.

    Or if you have a Ben Franklin crafts, you might find it there. We have a BF and it is $11.99 a can. Which reminds me that I need to pick up another can today.

    I got a can of Elmer's spray adhesive at WalMart, I don't remember what it cost, but was very reasonable. Try it!

    i have been using June Taylor basting spray for 12 years. i get it at Joanns or Walmart and i think it is around $10.00, i swear by it even though my friends are still skeptic as to whether it gums up your needle but believe me, i wouldn't use it if it did.

    THE HIGH SHIPPING PRICE IS BECAUSE OF THE CONTENTS AND THE FACT THAT ITS AN AEROSOL CAN. HAS TO BE SHIPPED GROUND FOR SAFETY REASONS.

    I purchased a case of the 17oz 505 awhile back and it was $154 and the shipping was FREE if you ordered over $149. The red cans look like they are marketed for European buyers. The directions are in English, Spanish, French and Italian. But the product is the same. I prefer the 505 as it seems to take less to baste a quilt and it seems to hold longer.

    I buy mine from Wally or connecting threads. I don't find any difference in the cheaper. I think they all do the same thing.

    I have used the Walmart brand (June Taylor) for years and like it. They have reduced the can size by 2 ounces but the price is the same as for the larger can.

    I bought several cans from Connectung Threads and added a on-sale book and brought order up to $50 for free shipping. Cans were small but I was not able to find it around here even at Joann's or other craft store.

    I'm not sure which type of Elmer's spray adhesive you got but be careful using it on your fabrics. Maybe it's different than the one I found. When I couldn't get the 505 spray in our Walmart, I sent a message to Elmer's asking them if their "Repositionable Mounting Spray" would wash out of fabric. Here's the response I got:

    "Removal of Elmer's Spray Adhesives can be accomplished using mineral spirits or citrus oil based removers, such as Goo-Gone, Goof-Off, etc. Apply the solvent to a clean cloth and place it on the stain for several minutes. This will soften the glue and the softened glue can then be removed with a clean dry cloth. Always test the solvent on an inconspicuous area first to check for compatibility issues."

    I just buy mine at the same sewing shop I bought my sewing machine, since I take sewing classes there sometimes.

    I buy The Original Quilt Basting Spray at Hancock Fabrics. It's a 13 oz can and is about 12$/can but goes on sale frequently.

    I use the June Taylor quilting spray from Wal-Mart. It is a 12-oz can and can be used for 3 queen size quilts. I can't remember the correct price, but it is not as expensive as the others. - Cynthia

    Thanks, I haven't used it yet and I will test it carefully before I do. What, Oh What would we do without the good firends here on the board.

    Glad to help. I'd hate to see a quilting project possibly ruined. Please let us know the results once you test it. I'd love to give it a try myself if it does actually wash out :)

    I got my at Joanns at the sewing machine section. It is Viking but they let me have the discount . I think it was 40 percent but it was not a coupon it was some sort of sale. I got the ig can for 12.00 Ask them if you have a Joanns and see if they will honor the coupon.
