am I right that the feed dogs do not drop on this machine?
Yes, this is correct....but you have to change the needle plate to a thicker one, so the feed dogs will be below the needle plate.

I would try this -
Make sure you are not using quilting thread for hand stitching.
Thread the machine with the presser foot up.
If the machine is stitching seams without a problem and the breakage happens with thicker fabrics, it could be the presser foot is not down below where it is closing the tension to the setting of choice.
When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens. When the presser foot is down, the tension control closes to the setting you have chosen.
If this continues, call the dealer/tech and tell them the problem you are having.

There are special quilting needles, so they may be worth a go.
On my janome you can change the bobbin tension, that might be worth a go. good luck

check to see if cleaning is needed. Threading and bobbin are correctly done. Could be thread if using a cheap brand. Try Sewer's Aid as a last alternative. That item is great for problem threads.
