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.

Yes, I cute the thread near the spool. Never mind that a piece of thread goes to the bin.

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 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.

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.
