This might get you thinking just a little ‘outside the box’ and the finished effect is one similar to that of couching your threads;   you can use thicker threads on bobbins that are front loaded (like the Bernina) or top loaded (such as the Janome);


Don’t forget to work on a sample piece first before transferring to your ‘precious project’ and the use of your walking foot is essential.

If you don’t know where to purchase a walking foot we have several advertisers on the site – check in the classifieds and then search in equipment.

Another trick is to try thicker threads and NOT put them through the tension discs of your bobbin and see what happens.


The thread used by Valerie is YLI Candlelight but other manufacturers do lovely ‘thick’ threads.
