It's not just my Bernina

And I thought it was just me, grunting as my Bernina sucks up the top thread and anything in it's needle hole area. Becky the Kenmore doesn't (front load bobbin). That crummy Brother I had didn't do it (top load bobbin), although it liked to unthread it's bobbin, which is a bigger pain.


see, Kenneth King is holding his damn threads back too on his Bernina (Craftsy Jeanius class, my screenshot, his hands)



This screen shot of Betz White's handbag class from Creative Live has her trying to trap those threads under her right ring finger
And in the second pass, it nests up before she can get to the threads


Does this happen with your machine?

  1. Very useful and I like expanding my glossary of sewing terms!

  2. I had not heard the word birdsnest either, and will now find myself muttering it from time to time.

  4. Both my Bernina and Janome do this. I hold on to the threads for the first few stitches or chain piece with a small piece of scrap fabric. This saves thread, too.
