I watched the show for a second time last night - Laura is so funny and enjoyable!!! I will watch to see if she comes to the Denver area and I will jump on the opportunity to take a class from her! Mary Kay

I tried the magic eraser this evening. It works great. Just don't forget to spray water on the eraser.

blowing a fuse 15 Aug 2008 20:28 #24212

Thanks very much for the tips. The dryer sheet removed the glue, although it did take more than one. I have a lot to learn about fusing - maybe I could get into the remedial class :) My first project came out wonderful, but the wreckage was considerable.

Life on the learning curve - is in session!

I've heard that ironing over a dryer sheet removes it also.

Sally I saw on Sharon Schamber's website that Mr. Clean Magic Eraser takes the gunk off an iron. I haven't tried it yet.

My apologies Paula, I looked because of the extraordinary price but definitely missed that it was by the yard. :oops:

Fusing 15 Aug 2008 17:14 #24193

What a terrific show. I was fusing before the sun went down. Small problem for a novice fuser - how do you get the gunk off your iron. OOPS.

I tried acetone and Goo Gone, neither of which would cut it. :shock: I would welcome any suggestions.

LOL, you got me giggling too, and the hood of the car is a bonnet.


Karen, congratulations on being quoted in the daily blog today.

I went to Corpus Christi yesterday to the quilt guild and joined. After the meeting, I stopped at JoAnn's to use my 40% coupon. They had a package with three of the fancy-cutting blades for the Olfa rotary cutters. With my coupon, it cost less than $6 for all three blades. Maybe I will try this technique sometime, LOL.

Now I have not ordered from these people but got this recommendation from another quilter. This site is a thread mill in N.Carolina and they have something called "stiffy" which is not fusible but is the stiff interfacing similar to what is used in Laura's quilts and people who make purses and bowls. Get this, they have a web special of a roll of 35 yds/18 inches wide for $1.29!

Thank you very much, Julie! I have a whole roll of that (well, very similar, the Floriani equilvalent - it's excellent). So far I have used it a lot for small things, but now I'm going for a 'big one' as soon as I can find a little time. I have had Laura's book for some time and it's excellent. Maybe in another year or so a can form the 'Northern England School of Fast Fusing', a little subdivision of the bigger sister in Chicago. :)
