Hay Stitchwerks, nice to have you aboard.  Good looking work on the caddy seat, I am also a Wyotech grad, way back in 1984 :o

Nice, indeed! Hey, I see all those cans of Keyston adhesive on your bench.  Do you use that to glue your fabric to the foam before you stitch for the tucks?  I'll be doing a Sweet 16 Donzi in a while and I'm trying to decide if I want to glue or not glue.  Sure is more difficult without glue when using 1/2" foam, though.  The Donzi was originally done with either no foam or cheap 1/4" foam and it went totally flat, making the tucks look all wrinkly and all the stitching shows.

The glue is a temp tack to keep the material in place while i sew. it helps me up a tone when sewing pleats or diamonds
