Question about a headsail in general

Hi

Short question: I thought that parts of a headsail (dacron) are glued together , then stitched!! Plus, isnt it common, that the stitches in the end were protected by some kind of glue?

Thanks

They use double sided tape to stick the edges together before sewing. Not sure about gluing the ends, can't say I have ever noticed.
