|I hate trying to eliminate that last little 1/32" thread end that can ruin the look of topstitching at the center front or hem edge of garments. It's much easier to conceal if you start the topstitching about 3/8" away from a finished edge with your machine set to backstitch. You'll stitch backwards to the edge of the garment, then forward to complete your line of topstitching; at the other end, you'll stitch to the edge, then backstitch. Trim the thread on the right side of the garment first, then give the back-side thread a little tug befor you trim it, so that the front thread is pulled to the inside of the garment. When you trim the thread ends, they won't be right on edge of the garment where you can never get them completely trimmed away.
