    Another Londoner!!! I remember buying my white glue from B&Q, and that's what I've been using up to now.

    Having tried several white glues, I have decided, quite emphatically, that Pritt KidsArt white Craft PVA glue is the best I have found, its a little more expensive, but I'm prepared to pay it. Get yours from Woolworths

    Try to use non waterbased glues. I had the same problems here in Australia, can't get all of the German UHU products. If the glue is not available at a hardware store, try shops selling scrap book material. The ladies using glues for all kind of materials, some of the stuff is also acid free. I have found glues containing strong acids start to discolour the glued edges. Bostik is making some great stuff as well, but not cheap


    Have fun, greetings from Down Under

    My main glue is Evo-stik wood adhesive, a white glue that grips quickly and doesn't stain, but gives enought time to position parts.
    I use 3M craft mount Permanent adhesive for spraying large areas, typically for lamination where I need an even spread.
    Sundry super glues for attaching small pieces and non-card materials.
    I've never got on with the contact adhesives
