Can anyone explain the difference between steam-a-seam and steam-a-seam2 ?

I think one might be heavier than the other, but I'm not positive.

One of them you need to sew on after fusing, the other one supposedly needs no sewing and in fact, they recommend not sewing through that one due to needle problems. I think the 2 is fuse only but I'm not positive on that.

Scroll down just a bit for some good comparisons for these fusibles.

Thanks, Roxann, for the link. It does has good info. After reading this, I think I may go with Heat and Bond. I'm concerned that the adhesives in the Steam a Seam may gum up the needle.

I like Steam-a-Seam 2 both regular and lite. It seems to me that the Lite (especially) is prone to losing its stickiness while it is still on the roll, if you've had it in storage for a while. I store it in little plastic self-locking bags, but those are never truly airtight. It still can be ironed on o.k., but it can be more difficult to keep in place while you're doing it.

Thank you, Roxann, for the link to the Steam-a-Seam information. That is very helpful.

I've never had a problem with Steam-a-Seam or Lite Steam-a- Seam, but I thought I'd try Heat 'n Bond since I know others who like it. To me, it was very stiff, even the Heat 'N Bond Lite, and I didn't like the feel on children's and babies' appliques. I'm interested in others' input.
