I told them how much I dislike toxic spray adhesives, and also how using fusible webbing & hot irons is very difficult to use when working with small fibre art pieces. Postcards are case in point. Glue sticks are gunky and liquid glue needs to dry or often soaks through and leaves a stain. I also told them how only had a half stick left and didn't share with my postcard class. So they sent me some Lapel Sticks free of charge. I'll use these to have available in my future workshops.
This arrival was perfect timing! On my table is the batting and backdrop for a landscape piece I "intend to enter" in the big quilt show this fall. It involves many little chopped up fabrics. I need that lapel stick but didn't plan on ever seeing it any time soon because of our national postal service strike. But here it is!

As promised, here's a little giveaway. Want to try some? I'll give a Lapel Stick to 2 lucky winners picked at random. You don't really need to do anything in particular but leave a little hello note. Maybe a limerick? Tell me in rhyme why you would like to win the glue. I'll announce a winner on Monday. (contest closes Sunday Midnight). Make sure you leave me your email address so I can find you.
Have a good weekend!
