Question about Bernina Artista 180
No matter which embroidery thread I use, the design starts, the thread bunches up on the bottom of the fabric and the thread breaks. I have used three brands and thickness of fabric stay under each garment without any luck. What am I doing wrong?
I also need better instructions on how to download designs. Help! I also have the same problem with the thread breaking when embroidery. It is very frustrating have to watch every stitch so i can stop it when it breaks. I hope someone can help.
It doesn't matter so much the thickness of the stabilizer but more a matter of it being taut like a drum and the proper stabilizer for the fabric you're using. Couple of reasons the thread breaks...the thread gets caught on the edge of the spool in the crack where the thread originally starts, you're not using the right size spool cap or the upper thread is wrapping around the spool pin. When I use my 170 for embroidering I always use the vertical spool pin to eliminate this problem. Try it and let me know how you make out.
