Hi Joann, I use Gorilla wood glue, but I'm new to this this year - so maybe someone else has some they like better. It holds everything for me and dries quick.

  1. @holly-mccaig thanks Holly.  I like that glue, use it for most things. Do you coat the whole piece or just the edges?

Hello!  Might be a bit late to the conversation, but my mentor taught me to use Quick Grab, or Quick Grip seems to be current name.  You put a thin bead around the edges and then do a serpentine pattern on the interior.  The next tip is that you lay it on and then press and pull off a few times.  Apparently that helps to activate the “grip”.  Of course this was 20 years ago, and a lot has changed about the industry 🥰🥰🌎🌎♥️♥️
