Details

Details

This is a double-sided acrylic adhesive that bonds well with coarse canvas fabrics like Sunbrella®, Top Notch® or Top Gun®. Basting prior to sewing prevents feeding problems and provides more accurate, even hems and water-resistant seams. Basting tapes are left permanently in place and are invisible. If any needle gumming occurs while sewing, intermittently clean the needle with an alcohol swab or an adhesive remover. The "Basting Tape Selection Tips" PDF document below details all the materials this basting tape can be used on.

3/8-inch width is ideal for 1/2-inch hems, the standard hem width, to minimize any exposed tape after hemming.

Sewing Made Easier

by

Makes working with bulky sewing pieces much easier.

Can`t work without it

by -

Use it all the time

Must have

by

This is a must have for canvas projects. The only downside is it is a little pricey.

Wow - how did I ever live w/o this stuff??

by -

I may never have to poke myself with a pin again! (And trying to pin through multiple layers of thick/stiff material is almost impossible sometimes, anyway...) After my first use, I immediately ordered another roll, as well as a role of 1/4" - I want to have this on-hand at all times! Tenacious hold - great alignment and seams as a result. Haven't yet had any problem w/ gumming up my needle. Seems to hold most any material - canvas, vinyl and webbing, thus far. Seriously good stuff!

Double-sided tape is very sticky

by -

This double-sided tape is very strong and it certainly makes sewing easier on items where pins are not practical.

customer support

by -

No hassle and to the point. Order it and it comes. What more could you ask for? Reasonable prices

Good buy!

by -

Makes life so much easier!! Before I got it I tried pinning and that just caused small ripples in the fabrics I was using. Plus using pins with those thick marine zippers is impossible. This has made my work look better and has made things go quicker for me so it is worth the buy.

Seam Stick Great for Light Projects

by -

Seamstick is a good product for light fabrics and canvas. Has a good hold for projects that are more on the delicate side. When using heavy vinyls or sharp fold-overs I find staples work much better and do not come apart

Great Service

by

Sailrite has it all! I send many of my customers to Sailrite for items I do not handle in our Sunbrella sales. Everyone is always pleased!!! Sunbrellafella

In Love With This Basting Tape

by

I absolutely love this basting tape! I have been sewing for over 40 years and this is the first time I tried using basting tape. Here is the kicker: my son who decided to make a canopy for camping and a few canvas bags to store his tablet and canopy pipes, was the person who introduced me to basting tape and to sailrite. I thought I would try the tape as I needed something to hold feather trim, lose feathers and lace in place prior to me sewing the project. I am in love with it. Works beautifully. You just take your feather ribbon trim, put basting tape on top and add additional lose feathers and lace trim, Then machine sew. It keeps everything "in place". Now I am Looking forward to making a feather cape as I know that my rows of feathers will stay where I put them so that I can sew.

Great seams

by

I'm just learning to sew my own gear and the tape kept me sewing straight. Super easy to use and watching the good videos helped a lot.

Tape Saved My Fingers

by

This tape is amazing, I used it to attach binding, that I tried pinning, but was killing my fingers. Will use from now on.

Glad to find Sailrite!

by -

Fantastic stuff. Wish I had discovered this product years ago. Made a large job so much easier; joining vinyl and canvas making roll up shades for a 12 x 25' porch!

Sticks well to Sunbrella - easy to peel off backing paper

by -

Very useful product. Easy to stick on. I used it on marine grade Sunbrella and it holds well. A good tip from the videos is to tear off the required length once you have stuck down the tape - this puckers the end a little, enough to make grabbing the backing paper easy.

The only basting tape to use

by -

I love this tape! I never attempt a project without this stuff! I recently ran out of this tape in the middle of a project. I tried, in a pinch, to use some other brand's basting tape. The tape performed pitifully. Lesson learned; This is the only stuff to use.

Great product!!

by -

Love this product! Really essential when working with canvas type material!!

Great product

by

Great product! It's great to use on canvas and I use it all the time. A must have:)

Be sure to try this

by -

This is a great product. Eliminates the need for pins or ironing seams to hold them in place before sewing. Definitely improves precision.

Seamstick 3/8" Basting Tape for Canvas

by -

Seamstick 3/8" Basting Tape for Canvas. Best for larger or thicker projects such as Marine Awning Sunbrella (1/4" for smaller lighter projects). Also best to secure YKK #10 Vislon zipper to assure a hold while sewing.

Just what I needed!

by -

Best product for sticking fabric together when sewing. I've used it on all types of fabric from Sunbrella to Phifertex. No more slipping and sliding with the fabric. Seams end up even. Keep it away from your stitching line and your needle won't get gummed up. Highly recommend.

Stick first, sew later

by

I have an old industrial Singer without a walking foot. I use Seamstick on everything I sew to keep the top layer from continually being stretched longer than the bottom. A great way to lift the backing to start peeling is to prick it with the point of your seam ripper. If you assemble everything with Seamstick first you'll never need it for anything else.

Great product

Great product. Makes the job so much cleaner, neater, faster.
