    Do you mean like a starter? I do that all the time. Are you at Ft Leonardwood? just wondering, spent 9 years there and we called it misery all the time!

    I typically try to use my straight stitch plate so I don't need to.

    I do two projects at a time, so that I don't have to use starters or enders. I alternate, and then I do not have to cut threads until the bobbin runs out. For example I needed a brainless project to finish today. I worked on this project and ran pieces for the 30 blocks of Bonnie Hunters mystery in between. It works really well for me because I would get bored sewing all thirty of those blocks at the same time.

    Yes.. I usually have 'something' ready to piece for the next project, that way I'm ahead when I begin the next wip....

    I use a starter and another one when I finish sewing a block or blocks. The person that trained me on my first Bernina called it a thread garage. Actually saves thread and helps keep your points from going down in the machine and making a mess.

    I try to have 2 projects going at the same time. It does save thread and it is just easier than trying to dig tiny corners out of the needle hole on the sewing machine.
