Question about Baby Lock Esante
Your thread might be old. Thread loses moisture over time and becomes more and more brittle. Metallic thread is probably the worst for breaking that I have encountered because it is so twisty. It twists up on itself making a little knot (like rope twists on itself when you turn it in one direction) and that knot won't pass through the thread linkage and then it breaks. One of the best things I have found to do is not put my thread on the thread holder. Instead, I put it on the table beside my maching on the side that the wheel is on, pull the thread between the buttonhole post and it's guide, and then thread as usual. This gives the thread a little more room to unkink before it gets threaded into the machine. It's sort of the same principle as those thread stands that you see.

First, make sure that you are threading the machine properly check your manual for right thread path.
Secondly, make sure you are using an embroidery needle.
