    Hey I read on your blog that twin needle topstitching causes some sort of tunneling. If you already know this one I do look foolish but whatever ;) : It does help to set the tension of the upper threads as low as possible. As a result of this, the top threads are pulled a bit under, so the bobbin thread does not have to work that hard going frome one side to the other. You’ll see this on the inside of your garnment, but no-one else, for it is on the inside of your garnment ;).

    You can set the bobbin thread tension lower as well (for a prettier look on the inside), but it is harder to find back the right tension when you get back to your regular single needle.

      That’s a good idea. I tend to have my top tension rather high as I think my bobbin tension is a bit high. Thanks!
