A number of our customers at Auckland Festival of Quilts purchased fusing for light weight silk from our stand. The following is a list of basic rules to ensure you get it right the first time! We will be placing the fusing up on the website for further purchases after the AFQ today.
RULES for fusing…
- Heat 140 deg. (cotton setting)
- Time 14 seconds
- Pressure VERY important to ensure you have a good bond
- NO Steam This will break the bond and cause bubbling
Use a piece of calico to cover the ironing board to ensure stray fusing doesn’t bond to your board.
Ensure the glue side is face down on the wrong side of your fabric.
Cover the fusing with either baking paper or calico to stop any glue seeping through onto your iron.
