Just would like to know what sewers here think about these products and their brands?
Fusible webbing - a sheet that has a glue on both sides..
Can be used to join two fabrics together
(ie. gluing cut outs on to another fabric for applique)
Interfacing - a sheet with only one side with glue..
Used to stiffen fabrics especially for the collar, button stand, etc places that require structure
Heat N' Bond Ultrahold is an ultra strong, paper-backed, iron-on adhesive designed for non sew apparel, craft and home decor projects.
Heat N' Bond's solid layer of glue provides plenty of bonding strength, and requires less heat and shorter pressing time than many other fusible web products. Heat N' Bond's advanced formula puts an end to fusible web limitations to provide the craft maker with superior results in a wide range of applications.

Heat N' Bond is not recommended for projects or items that require dry cleaning.
my opinion of this brand..
it's def strong and did not pucker fabrics i joined together
the only thing is that it stiffens the end fabric quite a bit
i would like to find one that keeps the original handle of the fabrics -pliable, soft..
