I am new to machine embroidery. I haven't even tried my new Janome 300E. Can I used the same spray adhevsives I use for quilt sandwiching to secure my fabric to the stabilizer before putting it in the embroidery hoop? Thanks!

I use 505. It is wonderful and it doesn't gum up the needle. I know that some people use the Sulky white can with blue lid and letters (don't remember the name). I'm not sure about the quilting sprays. I bought one to attempt my first quilt project and haven't started yet. It seemed to me that the quilt spray was higher than the 505. YOu just need a little spritz of the 505 so if it is properly used it goes a long way. If used on the stabilizer (not the fabric) it pretty well washes out over time.

I prefer the Sulky KK2000 because it doesn't have the nasty smell nor is it as sticky as 505 (as far as the needle sticking and making a mess). (Sulky is the white can with the blue top).
You don't need a spray if you use adhesive stabilizer...used especially on knits and small objects(corners, childerns clothes) Stick the stabilizer to your hoop and press your fabric to IT, if you need to, float some more stabilizer underneath the hoop. They make all kinds of sticky these days, peel off, iron on, water soluble.
