I have a Brother Innovis 1250D combo machine.

It has the auto thread cut feature.

However, it leaves about one inch thread tails that I have to cut off. I just assumed this was how they all worked but we all know how assumptions work.


Does your thread cutter leave tails at all? Or does it cut off all the tails? Please don't forget to share what type of machine you have.

I have a Bernina 580. I had to try mine out to see! I only use it when embroidering.

It leaves two half-inch tails on the bottom of the fabric. I'll assume that's the top and bottom threads.

That seems pretty long my babylock espire and my brother dreamweaver never left tails that long. I would say they are around half inch

Both of my machines leave tails about that long.

If you think about it, it has to. Open your faceplate and see the distance from the hole in the needleplate (which is where the last stitches would have been secured on your project before you cut) ... to the cutter.

What I really love about Babylock and Brothers... with their automatic needle threaders... is that when set up the auto needle threader to do it's thing, and you cut the top thread on the side cutter on the machine, it is the correct length so that when you start stitching, it pulls that thread to the backside of the work.

Likewise, the bobbin thread is cut automatically so you don't have to hold threads, etc.

My Janome 11000SE pulls the tails to the back and leaves about 1/4" to 3/8" tails. What I really don't like is that if I don't manually fish up the bobbin thread and pull it to the back before I begin the next seam I get a minor mess on the back side of the next seam. My dealer didn't think this was any big deal but it annoys me. Guess I'm too picky.

My Babylock Jane leaves about 1/2 inch or less. I love the thread cutter on this machine as opposed to the one on my Juki 600. The Jane never leaves a mess on the backside of the next seam like my Juki did.

My Viking Designer Ruby leave tails that are about 3/4"-1". I like them that length since I often thread a needle with them and bury them in the fabric.

That is my machine and it leaves the same amount. Doesn't bother me though. I don't normally trim back to the very end anyway.
