What Are MicroStitch Basting Guns For?

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.

How to use

Looking at the gun from the top, you’ll see a sort of T-shaped slot. This is where you’ll place the plastic tacks.

Line up your strip of tacks with the slot. Slide the strip down until you meet resistance. Don’t force it.

Close-up view

Before showing you how I used the tagging gun to baste a quilt, I’ll first show you a close-up view of how the gun works.

Put the gun in slightly sideways so you can feel that you’ve gone through all the way.

Just like you normally would, lay out your three layers on a flat surface.
