That sounds like a needle timing problem. Since you gave no info on your sewing machine... please take your machine in to your nearest authorized dealer for clean and adjustment.

SOURCE: tention on light cotton stitches too loose

If your sewing machine has a pressure control for the presser foot, loosen it or move to a lower number, however it is set up.

Make sure to thread your sewing machine with the presser foot up as this has a major impact on the stitch formation.

SOURCE: i have a brother vx-1125 the cotton keeps snapping..but the tension is correct..please advise..

I agree with Debbi. Tension adjustments must be made with each change in fabric type and thread type.

You don't say whether the thread breaks at the top thread or the bottom thread. Maybe more detail is advisable.

Hi ,



Make sure your tension is not to tight and that there is now fluff or cotton stuck in between your tension plates. I sometimes use a string of the stitch to pull in between the tension plates. I always set the needles tension first and then i balance the tension of the upper and lower looper.

Make sure the cotton are not looped around a guide. Black cotton and some cottons can build up their own tension. Try different cotton. I\'ve had many a headache with this problem.

Check that the needles are not blunt or bent. I always use schmetz needles. If your needle plate has any damage where the cotton can get hooked. Use a small file or sand paper to remove it. The stitch tongue must be very smooth and the stitch must slide of smoothly. Check that your lower looper point does not have a sharp hook on it. You can use a very fine water sand paper to remove it.

If your needles are touching the looper, i could indicate that your lower looper is out of position. *.*(Always check this with new needles)



Regards

Cotton is bunching up on the bottom of the fabric and then it snaps


Do you happen to have your feed dogs lowered? Tighten the top tension a bit and make sure you are holding both threads when you start a seam.

Also make sure you have recovered all needle pieces.

When I start to sew, the top thread breaks, before it makes a stitch.


obviously you've slackened off the tension so thats not the problem, try changing the neddle as some times they get a sharpe edge that cutts the cotton as soon as tension is applied, if the needle passes through the plate before it snaps the timing may be off.

Thread loops on back using quilt stitch


You need to put more tention into the Corners, Try puttin a tention of 10 into the Quilt. And it should work fine. 10-12 Maximum, don't go pass 12 because it will probably Rip, or Shrill up. Hope this Helped.

Thanks for Using FixYa! -CA
