Several weeks ago, I was contacted by Leslie, director of sales and marketing for the product Lapel Stick. Leslie sent me some of their product, Lapel Stick,asked me to use it and do a review and then giveaway some of their product. This sounded like something that I would enjoy doing. Last Friday, while working on the blocks for the Rag Quilt, I decided to test the product. Instead of using pins before I sewed the top and bottom blocks to the batting, I used the Lapel Stick.
I did like how it easily went on the fabric. The blocks held together. I did not have to use any pins. My sewing machine needle didn't seem to notice there was any glue at all. I liked using this product. My only problem was that I ran out of "stuff" in the Lapel Stick before I was finished the job. I also don't know how much the product costs. Maybe, it would have been no big deal to use several of the Lapel Sticks if they are reasonably priced. Here is the product description from their website,
Temporary non-toxic acid-free fabric adhesive that goes on in seconds and dries clear for Quilting, Sewing, Crafting, and Embroidery - replaces baste stitching, pinning, tapes, spray adhesives, and stabilizers. No more messy sprays or getting stuck with pins and it won't gum up your needles or machines! LAPEL Stick is water soluble and safe to use on cottons, wool, polyester, blends, felt, linen, and leather.
Now for the fun part. I have two Lapel Sticks to giveaway to two of you. Just leave a comment on this post. Your comment could include what you would like to test using the Lapel Stick or even your favorite Easter candy. Jelly beans are my weakness:)
Let's make this a quick giveaway. I'll choose the winners on Monday, April 25th and try to mail them before I leave for Paducah on Tuesday. I believe that Melisa at Sweet Home Quilt Show in Conyers, GA has the product in stock.
