    The cheapest place I found it is on this website:
    www.sewforless.com selling a 17 ounce spray can for $13.49

    I'm guessing s/h is additional. Best price for this big can. I read the blogs for this item and it gets rave reviews. Never used this or anything like it, so I guess I am in for an awaking. I hate basting and pinning. and this may just make it easier for me to do.

    It's a whole new world using spray basting. I never thought that I'd ever use it, but using it has made be a believer. It is on my "must have" list now. First time I used my comment was "SWEET" :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Bought my first adhesive spray at Hancocks the other day. The price wasn't on the can. Boy, was I shocked when I got to the register and had to pay $17.00. It must have gold in the ingredients! I expect it to work at that price!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff!! It goes a long way too! I started using it for my embroidery for when I can't hoop something then I spray it on the stablizer and stick it. But I tried it once on a small quilt and I am hooked!! Now I wouldn't use anything else! :thumbup:

    I have never seen the 505 at my JoAnns. Of course I am not in there all that often but they only carry the Sullivans and one other brand.

    Where do you place your quilt to spray? Does't it take a lot of room? Spray get everywhere, air, floor, furniture, etc.?

    I've been looking for 505 adhesive spray in my area all day today and people look at me like I have two heads! JoAnns only carries June Taylor and Dritz so I got the last can of Dritz with a 40% coupon. The 505 is available online on JoAnns website, but I want it NOW! I am usually not that demanding. So I got the Dritz brand and hope for the best. Members have said that Dritz is good, and I'm going on that when I put it all together tomorrow.

    I will cross my fingers and read all the blogs about adhesive spray before beginning. I am excited and can't wait to try this new adventure.

    For the first time ever since I started quilting, I used an adhesive spray to aid me in the final quilting process. I did my research and it seems 505 is the preferred choice for quilters, but I can't find that spray locally so I decided to buy the Dritz brand and I can say it did not disappoint me at all! Best of all, it's a breeze to clean up if you get it on the floor or table. Just use soap and water and poof, no more sticky.

    The quilt size is 70 x 65 and if it weren't for this adhesive I would be sending it off to the long arm quilter. But I also have another aid and that's the accufeed foot on my Janome machine. This quilt is one of the bigger quilts I've done on the Janome, and between the correct adhesive spray and the accufoot, I can't go wrong. I am a happy camper knowing that I can fully quilt this special gift all by myself. I am also saving a boatload of money too! One can sells for $15.99 at JoAnns but I used a coupon for 40% off and saved. I think I will stock up on this stuff.

    So, I am on a break cooking dinner before I go back to quilting. For those of you who fear using adhesive spray, want to try an easier method to the final process or simply want a new approach to other methods, please try this spray. The prep time is easier because you're not fighting safety pins or going the hand basting route. Someone suggested using large black binder clips to hold the fabric on the edge of the table and I only had two and it worked fine for me. However, I wasn't quilting a king and that would take more clips.

    Does anyone feel the same way?

    Do these basting sprays have strong fumes?

    505 is the only spray baste that is safe for indoor use; and I feel that is VERY important. That is why I only use that product...it isn't always good to buy a cheaper product; and this is one of those times. I don't smell anything when I use it and am very cautious because of living with an incurable form of cancer.
