It’s used for holding stabilizer in place during hooping. This high quality tape has a high strength acrylic adhesive for securing backing and fabric and a high instant tack allowing for multiple usages.
Double-sided tape is also a perfect solution for items that can not be hooped or where parts need to be kept out of the way. Just hoop a piece of stabilizer and use the tape to attach fabric to the backing. Unlike when using sticky stabilizer, double-sided tape holds the fabric from the sides so that the needle is not stitching through glue therefore preventing the needle from gumming up.
Also perfect for holding back excess fabric so they are not in they way when embroidering.
