MicroStitch Basting Gun for Quilts - Review and Tutorial 

I’m always on the hunt for new methods. This MicroStitch basting gun is the latest basting technique I’ve tried.  

What is a MicroStitch Basting Gun?

A basting gun is a hand-held tool that can be used in place of pins, basting spray, or other basting methods. This MicroStitch tool holds the layers of your quilt together as you get it ready to quilt.

Main Features

– MicroStitch tool with needle – 500+ 4.4mm size black fasteners – 500+ 4.4mm size white fasteners


– You can sew over the tags without breaking a needle. – The tags are easy to put in. – Handy for quick repairs.


– Costs more than safety pins – Tags are, unfortunately, made of plastic, so not really eco-friendly – Can be a bit fiddly to remove them

Is this my preferred Basting Method?

I find this easier than safety pins and less messy and less expensive than basting spray. 

But I wouldn’t say that I love this method so much I’ll never try another.
