TACK YOUR STACK BEFORE YOU WHACK!

Use this handy tool to tack accurately through multiple layers. Now you can keep pins away from your rotary cutter, and save expensive blade replacements! The very fine plastic tacks are easy to remove and leave no holes.

Similar tools have been used for some time for basting quilts. This new model uses “micro” needles, and the smaller plastic tacks are short enough to hold stacks together securely.Tacked stacks tend to lay flatter, and can be handled and stored more easily than pinned stacks with less chance of layers slipping.

To use the fabric tacks, align the layers as you would with a pin, sliding the needle of the tacking tool through the matching points. When all layers are aligned, pull the release trigger on the tool to attach the tack. Tacks may be removed easily by holding a few layers in each hand and tugging gently.

You can also use the MicroStitch tool for holding block kits togeterh, quick repairs around the house, wrapping gifts, and other handy tasks!

Note: We are no longer able to carry the Tool, but it is available from other online vendors and we continue to recommend it.
