Mom and I still hand quilt ! This gun,is perfect for secuing the top, batting, and backing with small plastic staples. Glides easily through all the layers,as we have searched for the perfect tool. Great value, love it!Read More
A great idea, but it doesn't work. Cheaply made, unclear instructions. Practice attemps were futile. When I actually decided to give it one final try, it worked about ten times then jammed and sent the needle flying. I am working on a very light weight quilt. If this item did work, it wouldn't be of any use on items over 1/4" thick. DON"T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!!Read More
I know the details of this product from the inside out and know how it was manufactured and marketed. It is an extremely well constructed tool, but the fasteners are the key. Nobody has anything like this technology on the market and it was invented primarily for industrial applications where it is in use today. The break away Microstitch fasteners are as permanent or removable as you desire. The tool is made for industrial applications as well so you'll see it perform incredibly well. It's durable and made to last and it's ergonomically designed for many thousands of repetitions in industrial applications. I'm not affiliated with the manufacturer and marketer but I know the product very well.Read More
I used this to tack on decorations for a party, and it worked great and held well. I liked it so much I ordered the refills and 2 extra needles. Yes, I would recomend this. This would be great for any hem repairRead More
I could not live without my micro stitch. I just purchased one for my daughter who moved out and wanted to take my micro stitch with her! It's a life saver when you do not have the time to sew something. It is useful for tacking camisole straps to bra straps and is best for closing those gaps that you sometimes get in your button down blouses.Read More
I ordered this tool to help with hemming and basting for the school band uniforms and choir uniforms. It works great. I have also found many uses for it at home too.Read More
Great product. You still need to pin quilt sandwich together first but using this tool makes it possible to remove all the pins and keep from getting stabbed by all the pins when quilting.Read More
I have had this for a couple of years and it comes in handy for many jobs big and small. I recently purchased another one to give my daughter for Christmas. She is always borrowing mine so I decided to get her one of her own. We have used it to tack collars down on blouses. hem pants and have even hemmed curtains. These are very strong for being so small and hold up over many washings.Read More
This is the best invention ever for quick hemming and tacking. I have one already and I bought two for Christmas gifts.Read More
