Buying more fabric thinking that you will make some great things and you stop in the middle of the project and you end up with many cut out fabric but never finish one single project. And your family think you can sew, they will ask you a favor to fix their wardrobe for free. It's fine if you enjoy it, or if you really want to stick with your plan and finish any project you start. Other, I suggest buy new machine, because you will get a good one to start and still have the warranty. Some dealer give you a free lifetime lesson (if its a portable home machine), which is nice since you can ask them a favor if you have some little challenge to be fix in the middle of something. Knowing the right thread tension for the fabric you are using can also be challenging.

I have a Janome 1600P and the top thread keeos breaking


There are several common reasons for upper thread breakage.

Check that the needle/thread/fabric are compatible.
All About Needles

Remove the upper thread from the machine, install a brand new needle, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point.

Why the thread cracked with when i sticked with the machine


Thread breakage could occur for several reasons.

First, try a brand new needle.

Second, use only good quality thread--NOT old thread or bargain bin varieties.

Third, when threading the upper thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot throughout the threading process.

Verify that the thread path is correct (consult the owner's manual). Incorrect threading will usually break the thread.

Check that the upper thread tension is set at the midway point between the high & low numbers.

I'm having troubles with my brother sewing machine


Your tension is loose on top. Adjust your tension dial up a little at a time until you have a desirable stitch. Before adjusting the tension, you may want to look into the tension and see if there are any threads caught between the disc. If so remove them. Another common problem is that your machine is not threaded properly, make sure the pressure foot is in the up position when threading and if needed consult your manual for the proper threading diagram.
