It's not necessary, but... If you're worried about the bury coming out, just back stitch it. IOW, after you to the bury, it best to put it under load. Then get out some needle and thread and sew down the length of the bury. I think Sgt Rock has a good video on making UCR's where he shows how to Back Stitch.
