SOURCE: My top thread keeps breaking. I have adjusted the

sometimes the needle plate gets a burr on it which will break the thread when sewing. Usually 2 screws hold the needle plate on and remove those and pull the needle plate off. Take a close look at the hole that the needle travels into and see if its a little rough on both side. If so you can use a file on it to smooth it back down.

I am making a quilt on Husqvarna Lily 530 and cannot get my upper/lower thread equal for outlining design in quilt..book doesnot help me....any suggestions for stitch setting


Tension for stitching a quilt sandwich is tricky. It helps if you use the same color for top and bobbin thread,. If your quilting thread is not the same weight (either heavier or lighter) than thread used for regular sewing, then the bobbin tension may need to be adjusted. My quilting thread is lighter weight so I have a separate bobbin case whos tension has been adjusted specifically for quilting. The goal is have both threads meet in the middle of the sandwich. If the top thread is showing under the sandwich, you probably need to tighten the top tension so it will pull the bobbin thread up into the sandwich. Do the reverse if the bobbin thread shows on top.

It may also make a difference by changing the type and size needle. I tend to prefer a top-stitch needle. An embroidery or microtex may also work for you.

Quilting is a bit more finicky than regular sewing. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread. FWIW, I use a separate bobbin case for FMQ that I have tightened the tension to keep the bobbin thread from coming to the top of the sandwich, but I tend to use a finer thread for quilting so adjusting the bobbin takes care of it. In your case, however, it sounds like the top thread is staying under the fabric. I would try tightening the top tension. Also, install a brand new needle--a top stitch, embroidery, or microtex needle seem to work well for me. Test well on a sandwich made of the same fabric and batting and get it adjusted well before sewing on your quilt. Sometimes sewing speed will affect stitches under the fabric, or even on top.

How do I adjust tension on a Janome 1600p-qc for machine quilting?


Adjust the tension the same way as sewing regular projects. You want the top and bobbin threads to meet in the middle of the quilt sandwich. When quilting, I use a lighter weight thread so I have a separate bobbin case whose tension has been tightened specifically for quilting. For other sewing projects using a standard thread weight, I use a bobbin case that is factory set and then adjust the top thread tension for each project.

Could be several things.

First, install a brand new needle, perhaps a top-stitch needle will work better because it has a groove in the shaft that protects the thread. Make sure the needle is the appropriate size for the thread you are using--a needle eye that is too small will cause the thread to hang or shred. When the needle penetrates the sandwich, the top thread forms a loop. If the eye is too small, the thread will not come back up through the sandwich, leaving a loop under the fabric.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Set the top tension to the midway point and retest your machine on a quilt sandwich made of the same fabric layers as your project.. Tension problems are more evident when sewing multiple layers of fabric, so tweak the tension until the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the sandwich.

I don't believe you will have to adjust the bobbin tension, but in case you do, be very careful. Mark the tension screw setting FIRST so you can reverse any changes you make. Bobbin adjustments are made in very SMALL increments. Because I tend to use a lighter weight thread for my quilting, I have a specific bobbin case that is adjusted for my quilt thread and I keep my other bobbin for regular sewing. Then I don't have to keep adjusting the bobbin tension when going from sewing a quilt to something else.

Some machines do better with certain brands of threads than others.

The thread keeps coming off the take up lever on my Quilt 50 Toyota Quiltmaster while sewing.


take a piece of tape and put the tape of the take up lever or take a pair of pliers and close the take up lever just enough so the thread will not come off. I had the same thing happen on one of my sewing machines.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top.
Be sure that your top thread follows the correct thread path.
Set the top tension to the midway point.
Re-test your machine.

Tension is a tug-of-war between the top and bobbin threads. Correct tension is when both threads meet in the middle of the fabric. If the bobbin thread is laying on the underside of the fabric, the top tension needs to be increased so it will pull the bobbin thread up into the fabric. If the top thread is pulling the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric, then the top tension needs to be loosened.

TIPS:
FWIW, thread tension is not static. Tension will need to be adjusted probably every time you start a new project. Test it on a piece of scrap fabric from the project and adjust it BEFORE beginning the project. Remember to change the needle often--probably every time a new project is started or every 8 hours of sewing time. Be sure to use the correct type and size needle based on the fabric & thread you are sewing. Also, AVOID old or bargain bin thread!

Stitch too tight on top, too loose on bottom


This is a problem with thread tension. The needle thread is too tight and the bobbin thread is too loose. I don't have one of these machines, but there should be either screws or knobs to adjust. Look at your manual. Here's a page I found on bobbin tension.

I am not sure I am following your explanation.

Set the tensions back to the factory setting.

Refer to the manual for threading instructions.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up.

Make sure the bobbin is inserted so the thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct order and through the proper guides.

Hand-walk the needle down and back up while holding onto the end of the thread.

Pull up the bobbin thread and take both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Always take the threads toward the back of the machine when you begin a new seam.

This may, or may not be contributing to the problem, but the materials you are sewing shed a lot of lint and the bobbin case, shuttle and surrounding area new frequent cleaning.

Hi! The bobbin tension rarely needs to be adjusted. First, make sure you're using the appropriate size needle and thread for your fabric (I'd probably use either a 'denim' needle or a universal size 14) and also that the upper thread and bobbin are threaded absolutely correctly. These can throw off the tension! Also, take the time to clean out the bobbin area. That can throw your stitch off also.

If the stitch on the bottom is loose, so that you see the top threads, then the top tension is too loose. If the top stitch is too loose and you see the bobbin threads on top, then the top tension is too tight.

It helps to thread the machine with different color thread on top and in the bobbin, and then stitch an inch or so on the same type of fabric as you're using in your quilt. Check the stitch. If you need to adjust the top tension, make sure the pressure foot is down! Adjust a little, stitch a few inches, and check again. Repeat until you don't see any (or very little) bobbin thread on the top or top thread on the bottom.

If you go through all these steps, and the bobbin thread is still loose (and you've tightened up the top tension), then there is a tiny little screw on the side of the bobbin case that you can use to adjust the bobbin tension. Turn the screw just a little bit (less than a quarter turn), stitch, check, etc. Once the bobbin tension is set, you shouldn't ever have to change it.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Happy sewing!
