Cotton breaks on Brother Embroidery Galaxie 2100 machine


i have a Brother Galaxie Embroidery 2100 machine, when I try to do some embroidery my cotton keeps breaking, which is very frustrating. I have bought red tipped needles and it still does it. I am using embroidery cotton which is a few years old. It does not seem to do it as much with ordinary sewing. Can somebody please help.

Try turning down your top tension setting a bit. If its at 4 or 5, i would turn it down to about 3 ish. Cotton thread is more brittle than polyester and rayon thread.

Hope that helps :)

If you can't find a lever, then they don't drop, but on those machines that don't there is usually a plate cover accessory that goes over them to do the same thing.

Does anyone have a spare embroidery frame for a super galaxie 895? Tried everywhere!! Someone please help. Brother won't help me


Find a brother dealer on eBay that sells parts...contact a promising seller to see if they have your machine and/ or parts. They don't always list all their inventory, but better a needle in a haystack then in a whole field!

Need embroidery foot for Brothers Ult2001


Most sewing machine stores that have Brother machines will probably have the embroidery foot. Ask for part XA5500-001. It's available online here for $22: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/screw-in-embroidery-foot-brother-xa5500001.aspx . Amazon.com also has the embroidery foot: http://www.amazon.com/Screw-Embroidery-Foot-XA5500001-Brother/dp/B0038RAVXI .

I hope this helps.

but is the carriage moving,? if not disconnect and try to connect again, the embroidery hoop holder usually moves to check itself, if it still does the same thing the connection that goes onto the machine is not making a proper connection, I also had this problem, with a 2100 brother , I fixed it by using a crochet hook and just tightening the connection that connects to the machine on the embroidery unit, but tread very carefully it just takes a slight move. if this fails it will have to be adjusted cost is usually $100au
