Replace the needle, use a heavier thread, insure the material is advancing properly as you sew.

    do not pull the material through, this may cause the needle to deflect and break while sewing.

The upper thread keeps breaking whenever I sew even though it is always properly threaded and the needle is fine


check the age of the cotton
cotton is not a single thread but a series of fine threads bonded with a glue
old cotton glue breaks down and the thread separates easilty
next check that the needle is installed correctly with the grove ( thread groove away from the bobbin hook
check the needle and hook timing because if it is off a fraction , the hook will pierce the the thread causing it to break
next check that the eye is the correct size for the thread in use
a needle eye too small for the thread thickness will jam the thread ans not let slide through the eye properly

My needle threads keep on breaking, I don't know what to do


  • Check the tension of the upper thread. If it's too tight, the pressure on the thread will cause it to break.
  • Check the thread you are using. If you're using two different kinds (one on top and one in the bobbin) that difference can cause the threads to break.
  • Are you using the proper thread for the job? Using a thin or light thread for sewing heavy fabric can lead to breakage.
  • Are you using the correct needle? Sewing knits with a sharp needle or sewing woven fabrics with a knit or ballpoint needle can also cause the thread to snap.
  • Is your machine threaded correctly? Incorrect threading can be another cause for thread breakage.
I hope this helps.

I have been sewing denim, and the top thread keeps breaking at the needle. What adjustments do I need to make. It also bunches from the bobbin.


Are you trying to use a heavy thread like buttonhole twist through the needle like the yellow thread on store bought jeans? Most domestic machines will not cope with this heavy thread and it will be too large for the eye of the needle too.

If you are using regular weight 50 polyester thread and its breaking then it could be because the top tension is too tight. Just loosen off 1/2 a number on top tension dial and see if this helps.

If possible, buy a pack of jeans needles size 100 too, these are blue coated with teflon I think, and makes it easier to slip through denim which is a very dense fabric.

Hemming denim jeans is probably one of the toughest jobs for a domestic sewing machine so if you are trying to do this, its a good idea to take it slowly and use a "humpjumper" which helps to maneouvre over the thick side seams.

However, even with all the above, many machines won't sew more than one layer of heavy dense weave denim.

Thread keeps breaking


Try loosening the thread when you feed it through. Give it a little slack but not too much. Also, make sure you are using quality thread like Coats & Clark. Lower quality thread has a tendency to snap and break.

Good luck!

The needle thread on my bernina minimatic keeps breaking.


There is special thread for denim/jeans. It usually comes in shades of brown. It's a little heavier and might help with the breakage. You might also want to try a little less tension. I assume you already have a Schmetz denim needle?
