Product Information
Product Code

Basting stitches are helpful for holding your layers of fabric and stabilizer firmly together in the hoop to minimise movement. Stitch the basting stitch prior to stitching your embroidery design.

These basting stitches have a stitch length of around 9mm, which also means they are easy to remove upon completion of your project.

I recommend pulling the tail of your bobbin thread right out so that you can hold both the top thread and bobbin thread with slight tension as the basting stitches start to stitch. As the tie on/off stitches are minimal to ensure the basting stitches are easy to remove, holding the threads with slight tension will ensure they lock together at the first few stitches.

Full hoop perimeter basting stitches (based on Brother hoop sizes)- 4x4, 5x7, 6x10, 7x12 and 8x12
