    Dear Juki Girl,
    What is the right way to secure starting stitches on a QVP 22000? Bring up the bobbin? Go in the same hole? Or not on both of these.
    Thanks,
    Jane

      This is dependent on what you prefer. If you pull all your threads to the top you will still want to take a couple of tack stitches or some quilters bury them with a small knot popped under the quilt top.
      If you are using the built in thread cutter, I take a few lock stitches at the beginning and end of the design and never bring the threads to the top. This will leave you with a small knot on the back. Depends on Who’s Looking 😉

    Dear Juki Girl,
    I have had a QVP 22000 for several years and have made a lot of progress in my machine quilting. I still have one problem though; that is securing the stitches at the beginning. If the bottom of the quilt is dark and top is light and I have used light thread on top and dark in the bobbin it looks like a sea of light dots in a sea of dark fabric. I have tried bringing up the bobbin and sewing in the same hole/and NOT sewing in the same hole. I have also tried Not bring up the bobbin and likewise sewing in the same hole/NOT sewing in the same hole. What is the right way?
    Thanks,
    Jane

    1. Hi Jane,
      I think I answered below but if you are specific about thread color and you don’t want it to show on top or bottom I would bury pulls the threads up, knot and bury, The same style as hand quilters would use. This would be the best way to hide threads of different colors.
