    What is the best basting spray other than 505?

    I need one that will wash out and doesn't smell too bad. I've got a VERY sensative nose.

    I'm out of the 505, and as much as I use, I'd like to find some a little less expensive.

    Thanks

    I got a little can of June Taylor when I was at Joanns. It worked great...if I would have had it quilted in 2 days. I'm glad i pinned too otherwise I would have had a big problem on my hands. A friend uses spray adhesive instead of spray basting...but I don't know the difference.

    Is the spray adhesive Permanent? The spray basting washes out.

    I got some at Wal-Mart. Only sprayed a little, set it aside and walked out of the room. I don't remember it being this bad. Will have to do a little at a time. It wasn't 505 or June Tailor. Just said Quilting Spray.

    I used spray adhesive, Sluyter feather spray 470, and it RUINED MY QUILT!!!!! Do NOT use this one. I like the 505, but I'm interested to see what other ppl are suggesting, since I don't like the price of the 505.

    I have used June Taylor in a WELL VENTILATED area!
    Will be trying it again soon in a not so well ventilated area. Will let you know how it works! (smells - I too am sensitive to obnoxious smells) :?

    I can only get it at my LQS. It is the 10.93 oz can.

    See why I am looking for something less expensive?

    Do you have a Hobby Lobby or Micheals in your area? It should cost less at one of these stores.

    I'm interested in this topic. I used June Taylor years ago and it left marks on some of the lighter fabrics where the spray seemed to be in big dots. I really could have used 505 this week as I pinned 2 baby quilts. AC Moore has is online but not in local store, shipping would cancel out the 40% off coupon. Guess I'll pick some up when I'm in Lancaster for the Quitler's Heritiage Show in April, or at a local quilt shop. Problem with LQS's is that they are an hour away and I really need more than a quilt spray reason to go that far with today's gas prices. I'm saving my fabric dollars for trip to Lancaster, my friends and I hit all those great shops with those great prices. I'm been compling a list of what I need.

    This site sells 505 for $12.58/can. If you spend over $100, shipping is free. If not, no matter how many items, shipping is $6.70.

    I buy from these people all the time and they are great. (I think they should be paying me advertising fees :roll: :roll: )
