Cutting at the spool is something I was told years ago. However, with the more sophisticated sewing machines nowadays, the tension disks are very sensitive and it is important to cut at the spool.
Also, try pulling toliet paper up from the top instead of off the side. When you pull it up. it will put a twist in the paper. The same thing happens to thread when you pull a thread from a spool that is wound round instead of crosswise. Pull round spools from the side, crosswound spools from the top.
maybe so but i do it all wrong all the time lol
I do it all the time
thanks for all your answers, I'.m going to try
I didn't know that, but I guess it makes sense. Now to see just how hard it is to break old habits. Thanks for the info.
I have been told this as well but cannot seem to get in the habit. lol
Yes, I cute the thread near the spool. Never mind that a piece of thread goes to the bin.
Yup, cut at the spool and pull through the bottom of the thread path....
Yes I cut my thread at the thread spool and then pull the cut thread thru from the bottom end!
Bernina recommends pulling the thread out through the needle and not the other way because you can mess up the tension discs that control the thread feeding through the machine. Once you do it a few times, it becomes a habit. As to the small amount of wasted thread - it's a whole lot cheaper than having your machine repaired!x
I am going to try, hard when its automatic you just don't think
I was told that also and it makes perfect sense. However I am the odd one. I do not do either but unwind back. Kind of hard to explain.
I do the unwinding also! It is automatic for me... Hugs. Judy...
Yes, been told that. Protects the tensioners and pretensioners.
I always do it. The little bit of thread is worth saving the tensioners on my machines. The longer bits I sometimes save for hand sewing.
hard to change after so many years
Yes, I was told that way back when I got my first machine. Another hint is that you should be sure to have your presser foot UP. I think that releases any tension that might be holding the thread tight.
