Do you mean to say you weren't impressed with Sulky ?
Then try 505, or OESD Sticky Stabilizer...if you don't like those...try Floriani, I think they make a sticky.
If you have something that needs that much help to keep stuck, then you really need to hoop it, if it won't make marks.

IMHO hoop-it-all makes by far the stickiest one out of all of them. They make it to hold hats down. It will rip the loops out of a towel quicker than you can say ____!:wink:

Sticky stabilizer: a) stabilizes fabric for stitching; b) holds it in place without hooping for fabrics that won't hoop well. A really sticky stabilizer is a bear to use. Nancy Notion's has a clear, watersoluble stabilizer that is like the old cellophane commercials - it sticks to itself like mad if you can even manage to unroll it, very sticky. Had to throw the whole roll away, found it too sticky to use. Spray adhesives seem the least adhesive of all. If you really need to hold something in place, use what commercial businesses do - use something like Hydrostick. It is not at all sticky until you moisten it. Moisten, put your fabric on and it holds great. It dissolves in water when you're done. Iron on stabilizers work, too, but you would need to hoop and you may be trying to avoid that. A simpler solution would be to D/L a simple basting stitch for the hoop, baste your fabric onto any regular stabilizer you have around. The basting will hold it in place without any stickiness at all.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I tried the Hydro-stick and was very dissapointed with it...just didnt hold anything and took forever to dry. I think I'll buy a little of each of the reccommended and see which one works best for me.
Thanks again!

I like OESD's Stabil-Stick quite well, I use it on most everything.
