Re: How Much Top Thread Should Show on Underside of Embroidery?


So does this mean 1/3 of top thread on either side of design with 1/3 of bobbin thread showing in the center on the back side of design? If so, my embroidery now that my dealer adjusted the tensions is great!

A simple "rule of thumb" is 1/3 - 1/3 - 1/3 of top - bobbin - top thread. If you are not using Janome bobbin thread you should use the yellow dot case and you should get the 'thirds' result.
