Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines
The thread is shredding at the needle, and this thread is treated with anti shred. I sew for about an inch or two and then it starts. It almost feels too hard to pull the thread through the upper tension mechanism. I have s really good pic of it. Is there any way I can send it? Thank you Pam
From my past sewing experience (not an industrial machine), the thread will shred if the needle/thread/fabric are incompatible. Could be the canvas is too coarse and is wearing on the thread like sandpaper. Remember, the thread/needle will penetrate over 10 times before that section of thread actually forms a stitch, so that's a lot of friction going on. In regular sewing, a top-stitch needle has a larger scarf which acts to protect the thread, however, not sure that is a choice for your machine.
