Just had to share this. I have tried all of the suggestions I could find to avoid creating the "Nest" at the beginning of sewing pieces.
I cut a 1" piece of velcro(sticky kind) using the loopy side and taped it about 5" behind the needle and to the left. Eureka!
I pull the two threads and place it on the velcro. I then drop my foot, then my needle, reach over to detach thread from velcro and away I go.
No more Nests.....
