Ok girls, here is one for you. Please respond here if you can, thanks.
have a question about tacking bedspreads. Is there any other way to tack bedspreads for a commercial job other than by hand? We are a manufacturer in Michigan and took this tacking job for bedspreads, and have found it very difficult to tack each spread by hand. Please let me know.

It's best to have them quilted. They could sub them out to a quilter, then finish the edges themselves. Or they could use a tacking machine, or a sewing machine that can handle the thickness, but machine tacking can look tacky (excuse the pun), unless buttons are sewn over them. Or they can try using a long upholstery needle, cotton crochet yarn or embroidery thread, make tacks the whole length, leaving the thread continuous, then when done, clip the threads between the tacks and tie them.
These are the only things I know of to do.
