    I usually only keep E6000, hot glue and a super glue. But it'll totally depend on your type of crafting. If I sewed, I'd probably keep more of a fabric glue.

    Thanks! The E6000 & Super Glue don't work well on plastics, and for fabrics it varies widely depending on what you're gluing onto the fabric.

    It sort of depends on what materials you are gluing. Obviously, wood glue for wood, etc. But the best multi purpose glues are: Gorilla Glue 50004 Adhesive because of it's strength, it's paintable and waterproof. Elmer's Glue-All Multi-Purpose Glue is on this list because it’s non-toxic, which makes it very safe to use. It also dries quickly, which ensures a stronger final bond and it’s washable, which is great should an accidental spill ever happen. Sticky Ass Glue SAG4OZ Waterproof Stubbornly Strong Glue, 4-Ounce because of the large amount of different materials it can bonds. It’s also waterproof and can be used between temperatures of -20 degrees F to 250 degrees F, which makes it excellent for outdoor use.

    Hi Jen to cover most crafting projects, I would keep on hand glue sticks for hot glue, wood glue, and loctite PL or gorilla glue. That should keep you covered for most projects.
