  Gary,
  I have had good success when sewing the large 
  hook "heavy duty" velcro using tissue paper ( white wrapping paper ) then 
  tearing the paper off. This works well if you are using wide spaced stitches ( 
  fewer stitches per inch ). The paper will get stuck with a tight small stitch 
  and is a hassle to remove. Hope this helps in someway.
  Fly safe,
  Curtis

    I have a Singer 
    112W140, and am having trouble with the threads shredding while sewing on 
    the hook side of Velcro.

    help with this problem?
