Oh no!  Isn't that always the case!  I bought a new one only last week!

Hope you manage to sell it!

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

 0_0 0_0 Oh no, oh well. I wish you joy with it. Looking forward to seeing what you make. (and by the way, it it drives you mad or you wnat to change, it is possible to cold glue hotfix stones)

You can, but don't use DSI glue with hotfix stones unless it's something that will never be washed. We've used GemTac on hotfix stones with a few losses if the leotard has accidentally gone through the machine on 40°C rather than the friendlier 30°.

I used DSI glue to put some hotfix leftovers onto a pair of Meryl leggings (for a flashy FitSteps Christmas workshop in Blackpool Tower) and when washed every single one fell off very neatly leaving their perfect little hotfix backing firmly adhered to the fabric.  They were the same stones that we'd previously used with GemTac so we're not sure why.

In all other regards we very much like the DSI glue though.
