Not all machines are alike and this issue may not be one for your machine. But as a sewing instructor I have seen this happen on both inexpensive and very expensive machines. Once you get in the practice of doing this as part of the sequence of sewing, as I do every time I sew, it becomes an unconscious step.

    thank you for the tip. these small inconveniences are occurring every little now and then and I always loose a lot of time trying to find solution (I am not always in a good relationship with my machines)

    Admittedly, this still happens to me sometimes and I’ve been sewing for at least a decade now. Never knew it was as simple as holding onto them! I always leave really long tails, but never hold them.

    I’ll be using this tip!
