Default Fray Check...where can I find this?

I am looking for some fray check but our walmart's doesn't carry it. I dont have a craft shop near me so I thought I could ask her to see if anyone knew where I could find it ...maybe somewhere online?

I bought mine at Michale's, but they don't have an on-line site. I checked and Joann's has it you could use the coupon too and get it cheaper.
Dritz® Fray Check : Fusibles : Bonding & Stabilizers : Sewing & Quilting | Joann.com
It is also on Amazon, I guess see which has the cheapest shipping. Hope I helped.

I agree-I hardly ever used the fray check.

I have to second that. I used Fray check and found it to be messy. I use a candle lighter and it is easier and cheaper. easier to find too.

I use a lighter on my ribbon hairbows but lately I have been into making fabric scrunchies and fabric flip flops and little string fray after they have been worn a couple of times. I tried the lighter but caught some material on fire LOL Anyone know of any other suggestions?

I agree with fray check being messy. You also have to wait for it to dry too and I am not patient, at all I use and totally recommend a wood burning tool!! It makes such a clean cut and I love the fact it cuts and seals in one step. HTH

I'm with the wood burner! Fray Check tends to leave a "stain" on some ribbon too.
