Halocho #545 - Pulling out basting stitches on Shabbat

A basting stitch is sewn with long stitches and unfinished ends. The basting stitch is used for temporarily holding sandwiched pieces of fabric in place. The stitch is removed after the piece is finished.

One is not allowed to remove basting stitches on Shabbat.

(This week is Shabbat Mevorchim Chodesh Iyar; Rosh Chodesh will be on Wednesday and Thursday.)
