In the garment industry you will find a square of fabric at most sewing machines that is used to start a seam.You sew on the square (start sewing in the centerish of the square) to begin with then you place your garment closely following it so you immediately sew onto it. You are jumping from one seam quickly to an other so you do not have problems with the beginning of the seam jamming or sinking into the the teeth.
I will take a picture to make it more clear.

what a great idea! My main beef, fabric being swallowed up when starting to sew, going to put this to work, thank you!

This makes perfect sense. I'm trying it today. I'm working on some lightweight fabric and that's a problem area for me.

Great thanks! I've been trying to find another way besides pulling the two threads toward the back at the beginning. I never found a way to end. :0

Even after many years of sewing I can still get a "birdsnest" of threads. A good tip that I will use. Thank you
