Baste with Monofilament Thread | Video

This invisible thread makes it easy to remove basting stitches once you’ve completed a permanent seam.

Video: Threads magazine

Monofilament thread has many uses, but you might not have considered its benefits as a basting thread. Unlike standard thread, it doesn’t get caught in machine stitches and can be removed quickly and easily. You can even reuse a length multiple times, as you don’t need to cut it to pull it out.
