Make sure your top thread is feeding properly and not catching on the spool or twisting as it comes off the spool. When i use metalic thread, i put it in a small can beside my machine and it works great.

Iam struggling whilst quilting my needle keep on breaking


Be sure you are using a needle that is suitable for the thread and fabric (layers) you are stitching. If a light weight needle is used, the needle may deflect when penetrating the layered fabric and break. Use a heavier needle. Use a super-sharp needle--perhaps Microtex, Top-Stitch, Embroidery needle. Be sure you are not pulling or pushing the fabric through the machine as this will pull the needle out of its course and cause it to strike. If you are still experiencing problems, the machine may have been knocked out of time. Search sewing machine timing or take it for service.

What is the needle size for brothe 911 sewing machine


Be sure to change the needle frequently, ie every time you start a new project. Needles will cause a great deal of frustration yet are the least expensive item to fix.

Brother750e in-no is dowloaded photo transferred to stitches using foil thread or embroydery thread , top thread keeps breaking, I've changed the needle don't know what else to try . Please help


Metallic thread is often easier to break when sewing. Make sure the thread is not brittle and old; It may also require "Metallic Embroidery" needles that have a slightly larger needle groove and eye spaces. Also, make sure your thread does not have additional tension on it when being fed from a vertical spool. allow the thread to flow horizontally off of the thread spool into the machine.Or place the spool bottom down on the table next to the machine and let the machine pull it up and over through the machine which needs to be very properly threaded.

My machine keeps breaking needles, I have embroidery unit on it,how do I fix this


1. IS THE NEEDLE THE RIGHT SIZE FOR THE MATERIAL?
2. IS THE HOOP BIG ENOUGH FOR THE JOB? IF IT GOES OVER THE EDGE THE NEEDLES WILL BREAK.
3 IS IT SEWING AT ALL? ARE YOU HAVING PROBLEMS WITH GOOD STITCHES OR NONE AT ALL.? THIS WILL NEED YOUR REPAIRMAN TO TIME YOUR MACHINE.
4. FOR A TEST ON TIMING: REGULAR SEWING WITH STRAIGHT STITCH. 1. PLACE NEEDLE ALL THE WAY TO LEFT AND TRY SEWING. 2. PLACE NEEDLE ALL THE WAY TO RIGHT AND TRY SEWING.
WAS THERE ANY NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE? IF THERE WAS THAT TELLS YOU TO GET IT TIMED.

Where can I locate the fuse<


Hello,

The Pfaff 7570 Creative Designer is a computerized sewingand embroidery machine that has the ability to connect to the computer, andhave embroidery designs sent to the embroidery machine. The sewing andembroidery machine has many features, including hundreds of general sewingfunctions, a separate embroidery module, and on-screen editing features. TheCreative Designer 7570, manufactured in the 1990s, was the first sewing andembroidery combination machine ever made by Pfaff.

1. Usingthe Sewing Machine
1 Turn on your sewing machine using the "On"button located just below the turn wheel on the right side of the machine.Thread your Pfaff 7570. Note that Pfaff sewing machines thread from left toright, not right to left like other sewing machines. The upper tension discsshould be raised at their highest position while threading, and the presserfoot should be raised up until you thread the needle. Drop the presser footright before you thread the needle. The prevents thread problems during use. 2 Insert a full bobbin and retrieve the bobbin threadthrough the thread plate. Raise your sewing foot and needle to its highestposition; hold the needle thread taught with your left hand, lower the needleinto the thread plate using your right hand, and then raise the needle. As youraise the needle, the needle thread will catch the bobbin thread, and pull itup. There should be a loop of thread intertwined with the needle thread. Usetweezers, your finger, or a straight pin to retrieve the bobbin thread that isvisible through the thread plate, and pull it through the plate. 3 Place the fabric under the presser foot, and drop thepresser foot. Choose the stitch you want to use from the top stitch display,right above the top thread feed. Press the '0-9" button located on thesewing machine's front panel, and a display screen will come up. Input thethread number, and press the 'OK' button located on the sewing machine's frontpanel. The stitch will display, and you are ready to sew. Repeat Step 3 foreach stitch you want to use.

2. SettingUp the Embroidery Unit
1 Turn the sewing machine off. Take out the embroiderymachine unit, locate the connection bushing on the back of your embroideryunit, and match it up with the connection bushing on your sewing machine. Theconnection bushing should be located next to a yellow sticker on yourembroidery unit, and somewhat resembles a serial port on a computer. Slide theembroidery unit onto the sewing machine with the sewing machine turned off. Connectto the bushing carefully as you slide the embroidery unit onto the sewingmachine. Use your embroidery unit manual if you need assistance. 2 Insert an embroidery card. Your embroidery unitshould contain an embroidery card labeled embroidery card 1. Use that or useanother Pfaff 7570 card that you own. Turn on the sewing machine. 3 Open the bobbin case area just below the threadplate, and lower the feed dogs by pushing the feed dog switch to the right.Press the card button located on the front face of your sewing machine. Adisplay with pop up; choose embroidery designs or monogram and a new screenwill pop up with your design choices. Choose the design you want, and press"OK." A checklist screen appears. Do everything on the checklist, andpress "OK." Use your embroidery unit manual if you need help. 4 Start embroidery by pressing the foot pedal. At thistime, your hoop should already be attached to the embroidery unit becauseyou've already gone through the checklist. Your embroidery manual displayscolored picture diagrams that are very helpful in understanding everything inyour checklist menu.

THE DISNEY PICTURES EMBROIDERED SEEM OUT OF LINE WHY IS THIS & IT KEEPS BREAKING NEEDLES ITS A BROTHER PE-180D EMBROIDERY MACHINE CAN ANYONE HELP ME????


Use cut away stabilizer and if you are already doing this, double the layer.

The needles may be breaking because they are too small or not installed correctly.

Try a size 14 machine embroidery needle and check the manual to see if this is with the flat side of the needle to the back of the machine.

One other thing could be that the timing needs to be adjusted. You can find information on how to set the timing at sewusa.com or take the machine to a professional for service - always take an example when the machine has been mis-stitching.

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.

Pfaff creative half-speed and thread breaks


YIKES - what a nightmare! We can approach your problem two ways, but to determine whether the problem is your machine or your design, I need to know if you have been using one design, or if you've tried to embroidery several different designs and are getting threadbreaks about every 10,000 stitches, no matter what design, needle, thread, and bobbin you use.

Here are some rules you should following whenever you embroider on your machine:

  • Change your needle and insert a newly wound bobbin every time you start a new project
  • Use a size Embroidery Needle - size 90 for most projects
  • Check the backside of your design - you should see alot more bobbin thread than embroidery thread. If you don't see enough bobbin thread, loosen your top tension. If the tension is set automatically, change it manually.
  • Your design might be the problem. Some designs have WAY to many stitches. If you haven't already, choose several different designs with different styles - for example, a monogram, a design that is mostly satin stitches, a design that is mostly straight stitches, and so on. Sew one or all over and over so you determine whether your thread will continue to break about every 10,000 stitches.
I hope this helps. Machine embroidery is so much fun once you've learned and practiced. I hope to hear from you - machine embroidery is not hard to learn, but there is a lot to learn. Thanks.







If you want to get right to work, skip the troubleshooting and answer as many questions as you can or have time for. It is possible that your problem is the design and not the machine. Try one suggestion at time so you what helps and what doesn't. Questions first:

  1. Is the machine brand new, or new to you?
  2. Do you have your manual?
  3. Do you been embroidering by machine for a while, or are you just learning?
  4. Does this problem occur with every design you sew, or is it one particular design that you are having trouble with?
  5. How many total stitches are in the design you are trying ot sew?
  6. What kind of thread are you using (rayon, poly, sewing?)
  7. Did you buy the machine from a dealer, and if so, does it have a warranty?
  8. Have you taken lessons on how to use your machine for both sewing and embroidery?
  9. Are you familiar with embroidery backings, needles, and threads and how to choose which to use for a particular project?
