Where to Buy

How do I use 404 for machine quilt patterns?

For Long Arm Machine quilters: When the quilt is on the frame, spray the back of the paper pattern. Apply the pattern to the quilt. For free motion quilting: Spray the outer edges of the pattern. Apply pattern to proper location.The bond remains strong enough to withstand the rigors of machine quilting. Adhesive will not transfer to the fabric and 404 will not gum up your needle.

On what other surfaces can I use 404?

404 can make a repositionable bond between most smooth surfaces. 404 will hold stencils on the wall. You can reposition over and over. 404 will hold on ceramic, wood, painted walls, metal, leather, stone and glass.
