Machine Embroidery Adhesive Spray


The Machine Embroidery Adhesive Spray is Pressure Sensitive, which allows repositioning. It will not soak through fabric or paper. Ideal for all types of sewing and pattern work and is great for strip quilting.

Directions: Shake well before using. Spray lightly on the back side of item; applique, quilt template, pattern, etc. Use a sweeping motion from a distance of 8 to 10 inches. Allow to dry completely (3 to 10 minutes). Once dry, you may proceed with your project. MEA can now be stitched/sewn through and will not gum up your needle. MEA will remain tacky for 3 weeks or more. If it is necessary to rejuvenate, simply steam lightly with an iron. The adhesive properties of MEA will diminish over time, especially after washing.
