Sounds as though you've misthreaded the upper tension. The best way to verify this would be to thread your machine, lower the presser foot on to the material. Now try pulling the thread through the needle. (Assuming your upper tension dial is set to a number greater than one). You should feel resistance. Should you not feel resistance, rethread your upper tension.

SOURCE: Designer One "broken thread"
If the upper thread spool is spinning allowing slack to the inlet of the tension assy and the machine gives a broken thread indication shortly afterward, the pre-tension assy needs to be adjusted. If the machine has the original "snap in" tension assy that was in the first generation of Designer 1, have it replaced with the modern "lay in" tension assy. Slack at the spool should never cause a broken thread indication as long at the thread is in the pre-tension assy.
Sulky thread will work as well in a Designer 1 as any other embroidery thread as long as it is properly adjusted.
One thing that you can look for, when the machine is sewing, watch the thread as it passes out of the left hand side of the tension disks. It should exit the disks at the 9 o'clock position. If it starts to drift up to the 10 or 11 position and then you get a broken thread warning, the pre tension must be increased.

The problem is actually with the upper thread not having enough tension on it. Check your upper tension setting,,,it should be set about mid range of its adjustment (4,5 or 6). To see if the tension is functioning correctly thread the machine and raise the presser foot to its up position and pull thread thru the needle. It should pull easily, lower the presser foot down to the fabric and now the thread should become harder to pull. If there is no change in the pull,then either the thread is not in the tension correctly ot the tension is not working,
