    I am going to take a free motion class next week and the instructor said to get some kind of spray that holds your fabic to your batting so I won't have to use pins. So I went to Jo Anns and got adhesive spray. Is that what she was talking about? I would appreciate any replies received.

    She probably meant something like 505 Spray. Or 501, I can't remember right now which one it is- sorry :)

    I use 505. I believe that there are a couple of brands. I hope that the spray adhesive is not a permanent type. You need one that is specifically for basting quilts.

    Does what you bought wash out? If not, it may not be what the teacher wants you to get.

    I agree :D
    If the label said temporary, washable spray adhesive, for fabric you are ok.
    They do sell craft adhesives that do not wash out, and they can gum up your needles and stain your fabrics :wink: :D:D:D

    What I use is Quilt Basting Spray which is different from spray adhesive. Spray adhesive is a more permanent bond. There are several brand names available.

    I get the June Tailor brand at Joann's. It it adhesive spray that washes out. I'm sure this is what your instructor wants you to use.

    I too think it is what is called basting spray and Jo Anns carries the June Tailor here too. I do like other brands such as Sullivans, better. I get it from Hancocks.

    I like 505, but there are less costly that are just as good.

    I buy the June Tailor brand from walmart....10 oz can for $8...works great for me, but must remember that a little goes a long way....with nobody to show me, I used way too much the first time and had a mess.....I can now do 4-5 lap sized quilts from one can and have no issues....I can even sew down the edges and trim off any extra batting/backing with no problems....after using the spray correctly, I will never pin baste again!

    I've used it but don't use Dritz. It totally gummed up my machine. I had to PULL the quilt top from the batting and backing and wash everything to start over again. I was shocked at how heavy the spray was as I have used the other sprays

    I used Dritz for embroidering towels because I couldn't find the 505. It was awful. I barely sprayed it on the towel to adhere it to the stabilizer (and I tried it both ways). After I removed the towel from the stabilizer, the towel kept sticking to itself. It felt awful. Good thing my sister was going to immediately wash the towels before sending them off to college with my niece!!

    I love the June Tailor brand too. All I could find was the dritz and it was just terrible

    It sounds like you picked the right spray.
    It sure was a shocker to find out how much these can cost. Even with a 50% off coupon at JoAnn's I thought it was a bit much. But now I'm so glad I spent the money, it helped a ton. I had troubles even with using it, but without it, my quilt would have been a disaster.

    What ever the brand name was, and you got it at JoAnns then you got the right stuff. I mistakenly bought some 3-M spray adhesive at a hardware store. (Long, long time ago.) Hard lesson to learn.
