      I'm just curious… this is a question for all you ladies that travel to camps and crops – what adhesive do you bring on an airplane? I was told I can't bring any of my liquid Helmar or Beacon adhesives for an upcoming trip because it is banned (due to being highly flammable). Not even for checked baggage. Do I need to resort to going back to glue sticks and tape runners?

        I have taken my liquid adhesives on the plane. They have been in my checked luggage.

          Me too. As long as it's in checked luggage, you should be fine. 🙂

            If you take FabriTac, make sure you double wrap it in a plastic bag. When we went to the Anna class in CA, Krissy packed FabriTac and Glossy Accents in the same bag, and the FabriTac opened up and ate through the Glossy Accents!

              OMG! You know what… it may be a Canadian policy that we can't bring liquid adhesives. They might let me into to USA with it but not bring it back home.

                I've flown with adhesives in checked luggage but not inteationally. Good luck Vicky.

                  Yes, it must be a Canadian policy, Vicky.

                  I do pack mine in the checked luggage, wrapped in a thicker baggie. The TSA did go through my stuff once and never took it out, so it's okay.

                  A thought: why not pack one or two of the sample-sized bottles? I know that Beacon doesn't sell them, but Aileen's does as part of a 5-bottle variety pack.

                    It's stupid you can bring a sharp metal crochet hook directly onto the plane with you… but not liquid glue in your checked luggage – because the bottles say flammable. I have heard of sniffing glue but not blowing up a plan with it.

                      Well, you never know what can happen in the luggage belly of the plane, but even if you didn't bring glue, there are other flammable things like hairspray and what not. I think it is kind of dumb. I'm pretty sure you aren't supposed to travel with it in the US either. The worst that would happen is that the TSA would take it from your bag and throw it away??

                        I've also flown with liquid adhesives in checked luggage with no problem. As some of the ladies can tell you the TSA LOVES to go through my bags and they haven't taken anything.

                              I will take my chances with one small, sealed bottle of Beacon. I won't bring my Helmar since it is so damn hard to find here in Canada (and way more expensive!).

                                I get a TSA card every time too. I wish they'd pack it all back up as nicely as they found it. ;)
