cost - up to $20 a can, depending on where you purchase it. Joann's doesn't carry it so no coupons to help there. Also have not seen it at Walmart. I purchase mine at my quilt shop and Lowes/Home Depot also usually carry it.

reposition? = yes, this is the best thing about it, it's a temporary spray, so you can reposition it. I had to on my last project and by holding one hand on the lower layer, I could easily pull up the top layer and move it. You don't have to respray in this case, there is plenty of "tack" left to simply move the fabrics and reconnect them in the desired place.

The number of quilts you can use it on depends on how much you put on each quilt. It doesn't take a heavy spray to do what you need to do...no sense wasting the spray, and too much can make it more difficult to reposition fabrics if you need to. I try to get an overall coverage without getting it too heavy. I use my hand to test by gently pressing my hand onto the surface sprayed. If I can feel that the surface is tacky, there is enough on there to do what I want.

here is one site with more information...hadn't heard about the Aqua Net tip, and not sure whether I'll try it or not. I've read other comments by users of 505 about how long the adhesive holds, how good it is, etc., so probably will continue using it for my work.

Joanne's over here in Texas has it and I use the coupon! Just don't use it on the wood table--without covering it! I have spots that chemicals went through!

I like Sullivans. Use very sparingly and do not spray in a closed room - or at least have some air movement. If you have breathing problems, use a mask while spraying. i have also use 505 with the same results. One can goes a long way. I especially like to use it on smaller quilts, then I don't have to pin at all or very little.

1. How much does it cost
The cost can vary depending on where you purchase it

2. can you buy it at walmart or a quilt shop.
I've purchased it at WalMart, JoAnn's, LQS and you can get it on line

3. can you take apart with out messing it up if you didn't do something right on centering
Sure!! That's the great thing about it

4. do you have to respray then after fixing
I haven't had to respray

5. and lastly how many quilts will it do before repurchasing? Know they may be stupid questions ,but I thought I would ask anyway!!

Totally depends on the size of quilts you do.

Very interesting. I can't find it anywhere near me, but did find 505 spray and fix at walmart.com with free site to store shipping so I may just go that way and wait for it to come in

Very interesting about the Aqua Net, but I'm worried that the hairspray would have a horrible smell to it and I would have to use it inside when it is winter time up here.
