Many of you already are aware of this information but Bernina posted this information in their monthly newsletter and I thought it was a great reminder.  Especially with the newer machines which tend to be a little more particular.

"Most spools of thread are wound one of two ways, cross-wound or stacked. The thread will come off of each type of spool differently. These tips can help if your sewing machine has both vertical and horizontal spool pins.

Cross-wound spools: The thread has been wound on the spool in a criss-cross way, resulting in a pattern of “X’s” on the spool. Cross-wound spools work best on a horizontal spool pin to allow the thread to evenly feed off of the spool. The thread should come off the top of the spool. Use the spool along with a foam pad and spool cap to help keep the thread from wrapping around the pin.

Stacked Spool: The thread has been wound on the spool to stack one row above the other, resulting in a pattern of straight lines on the spool. Stacked spools work best on a vertical spool pin to allow the thread to evenly feed off of the spool. Use the spool along with a foam pad to help keep the thread from wrapping around the pin.

Jann, thank you.  I am always challenged by this issue.  I am printing your post and will keep it where I can see it.  I get so confused and want to "do it right" every time, but I know I get too haphazard in my thinking and make mistakes.  I just had a BIG issue with my little BL Elizabeth and wonder if it was because of the thread/thread wind I was using.

I always read the great info on Superior Threads web site. They have several tutorials on threads, and tensions. Take a look. It can answer any questions you may have.

Thanks for the info! So many embroidery machine users-small single needle—have thread issues and it’s usually because of the way it feeds into the machine
