Adhesive Sprays & Powders
Adhesive sprays and powders are a popular choice among quilters and sewers for various projects. They offer a convenient and mess-free way to hold the fabric in place before stitching and can also help to stabilize delicate fabrics or prevent shifting during the sewing process. Here are some common types of adhesive sprays and powders used in quilting and sewing projects:
Temporary Fabric Spray Adhesive - This adhesive spray is ideal for holding the fabric in place temporarily, such as when basting or appliqueing. It allows for repositioning if necessary and won't leave residue on the fabric after use.
Fusible Web - Fusible web is a type of adhesive powder activated by heat. It is commonly used for appliqueing and bonding fabrics together. Fusible web comes in different weights and can be used for lightweight and heavy-duty fabrics.
Stabilizing Spray - Stabilizing spray is designed to prevent the fabric from shifting or stretching during the sewing process. It can be used on various fabrics, including knits, lace, and other delicate materials.
Quilt Basting Spray - Quilt basting spray is specifically designed for quilting projects. It can hold quilt layers together before quilting, eliminating the need for pins or thread basting.
When using adhesive sprays and powders, it's essential to read the manufacturer's instructions carefully and test on a small area of fabric before use. Always use in a well-ventilated area and avoid inhaling the spray or powder. With proper use, adhesive sprays and powders can be a valuable tool for any quilter or sewer.
