5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly useful, February 29, 2012
This review is from: Beacon 3-In-1 Advanced Craft Glue, 4-Ounce (Kitchen)
I've been able to find glue that works with paper projects but fabric is another matter. I must have tried a dozen different kinds unsuccessfully. Finally a friend who does fabric and paper crafts quite a lot recommended this and I've been delighted with my results. I recently needed to reconfigure a large open backed bookcase that holds various electronic components. Because it held many books too, the equipment cords trailing down the back were hidden from view, but after it was modified to hold the new piece of equipment, the books had to be repositioned and the cords showed. They looked awful so I decided to try hanging pieces of matching fabric in the back of the cubbies to hide them. I expected a lengthy sewing project, and worried that the seams would be visible and I'd just be trading one ugly view for another. Then it occurred to me that with the heavy fabric I'd chosen, perhaps I could fold it over the little tension rods and glue it to avoid the seam line. Well, it worked perfectly thanks to this wonderful glue.

The glue fused the fabric together almost immediately so I could hang it. I could still adjust it as needed, but it didn't come loose from the rod. The glue did not bleed through the fabric and is completely invisible. I have the clean smooth appearance for the backing that I'd hoped for. The old bookshelf looks much richer with the backing and I can still access the cords as needed.

My friend makes darling greeting cards for seniors in residential facilities and uses the glue extensively to affix clever foam, paper or fabric shapes to the card stock to express her theme. She also makes lots of costumes for her grandchildren and decorates extensively for holidays. She's found many, many uses for the glue and now that I've discovered it, I'm sure I will too. Here I was stressing over the possible need to purchase an expensive entertainment center and I've solved my problem for a few dollars. The bookcase looks great and I'm inspired to try more crafty solutions to household problems. Highly recommended.
