We offer the Elmers Purple Glue Stick for your convenience. This glue stick is Missie’s favorite for adhering wool applique’ shapes to each other or onto the project background. It doesn’t get stringy, won’t dry out quickly and doesn’t make a big mess. The color helps you see how much you are using and the color lets you know where it is. Of course it dries clear. Each glue Stick is only $1.12. She uses the glue stick along with the long arm stapler offered on this website. The glue helps hold the shape of the wool applique and the staples hold it on even when it is squeezed in your hand while stitching and won’t allow the shape to pull away from the background.
