Seamstick 1/4” Basting Tape is a double-sided mylar film adhesive that bonds well on smooth Dacron sailcloth, nylon, vinyl, or cotton. It is strong, neat, and nearly invisible. Use basting tape instead of pins on sails, bags, covers, and more.
Basting prevents feeding problems while sewing and assures that cloth panels will come out evenly. Seamstick Basting Tape comes in three widths: 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2". Choose a width similar to the seam width. This 1/4” width is used most often with home sewing fabric.
Note: These basting tapes are left permanently in place and are invisible. If any needle gumming occurs, intermittently clean the needle with an alcohol swab or Goo Gone.
This item should not be used for Sunbrella. Instead use Seamstick 1/4" for Canvas (part #104167) it is designed to stick to Sunbrella (acrylic fabric) much better.
