Sounds like your embroidery foot isn't on properly. I have had this exact same problem and have had many needles break... it's because I didn't have the foot on nice and straight, even though it seemed like it. Try taking it off and putting it back on - you may have to do it several times, but once it's on properly, the needle should be dead-center of the little metal loop of the embroidery foot. If it's off, even a bit, the needle will break. Hope that helps. Remember -- patience, patience, patience!!!

Loosen your tension on your tension adjustment. It will show you where in the manual. Just feel it out a little at a time until it feels better and the problem goes away. Stop before the needle breaks and all but some machine you have to work the kinks out.
