I am just venturing into art quilting after quilting for around 8 years now. I am trying to glue yarn onto my fabric and was using a jewel glue cause I had it on hand and also a craft glue. Both of these are messy and not working for me. What do you use?? The item is going to be a wall hanging and will not get washed.

Hi Laura-

I use Aileens Tacky Glue for attaching things to fabric.  It dries clear and holds well.  I have used this to seal the edges of small (tiny) art quilts before binding them with Yarn.  You could also use a Matte Medium to attach lighter things to your fabric.

Thanks Cheryl! I actually have some of that. I think it was from my Mom-in-laws stuff.
