I am quilting with a new needle with Aurifil thread. Every bobbin change I clean the machine. Why does the top thread keep breaking?


A couple of other things to check--

Be sure to use a a good brand needle (no bargain bin varieties)--most quilters prefer quilting, embroidery, or top-stitch needles. Check that the needle eye is compatible with the thread weight. If the thread is shredding where it goes through the eye, the thread is most likely too heavy for the needle.

Confirm the thread path is correct. When threading, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE THE PRESSER FOOT during the process. This releases the tension disks so the thread will seat properly.

Make sure the thread is not catching on a nick or burr somewhere along the path. Thread spools with the little nick in the side for securing the thread during storage are famous for catching and breaking the thread during stitching.

Check that the tension is not too tight.

Also perform a test for nicks or burrs in the bobbin area. Wrap your index finger with fine fabric, ie chiffon, old hosiery, etc. and run your finger around to see if there are any rough spots on the needle plate, hook, etc.

Aurafil thread is used by a lot of quilters, however, some machines just do better with different brands of thread. If it continues to be a problem, you might test another brand.

How to get the hand look quilting stitch on the Lily 540?


Hello Joyce Smith
Please refer to page 45 in the instruction manual which can be downloaded for free at this link
http://manuals.husqvarnaviking.com/

Instead of using invisible nylon, if at all possible use invisible polyester thread. It behaves better and does not break during prolonged stitching. Use a "Quilting" needle size 80/12.

Free motion quilting skipped stitches, breaking threads


Might be that you need to lower the tensions quite a bit, you'll have to juggle with top and bottom tensions though, and experiment for just this operation with the Sensormatic.

Needle thread breaks while quilting on machine frame


My friend and I both have the Juki 98Q but on different frames - we were both having problems (needles breaking, thread getting tangled) we removed the thin metal thing inside the bobbin case and have had no problems since (over a year now!).

My needle keeps breaking while I'm trying to machine quilt. It also at times will collect the thread on the other side of the quilt which makes me think something is wrong with the bobbin.


Q1.(A) Without realising, you could be 'helping' the material feed.
Q2. (A) Is the thread collecting at the start or during sewing?,,if at the start, make sure threads are clear and hold them out the back of work gently till a few stictches are made.
If during sewing, it could be tension isn't adjusted correctly, experiment.
