    I am not talking about when I embroidery, although it does the same thing then. I am talking about just regular sewing. Plain straight stitches. The top layer of covering on the thread, I suppose it is the cotton covering on the string of thread, is being pushed up the center shaft of thread and breaks after a few sticthes. I use quality thread, not cheap thread. I use the embroidery threads sold by Kenmore when I try to embrioidery and get the same results.

Could you send a picture.
sound like tension. I could be bottom, tension to loose if it is coming to the top. Top tension if it is pulling on the bottom.

Ensure that you have set the fabric properly on the machine.

Take the embroidery hoop and place the fabric into the hoop, securing the fabric and stabilizer with the metal clasp. Set these aside, and load the embroidery thread onto the sewing machine. Press the embroidery button on the machine; it is the second button from the top. The machine will set itself up for embroidery mode.

Attach the P foot that came with your machine, and then attach the embroidery hoops with fabric still inside the sewing machine. Turn the knob on the embroidery hoop to your right until you here it click in place.

Buy tear away or water soluble stabilizer for easy, mess-free designs.

Brother750e in-no is dowloaded photo transferred to stitches using foil thread or embroydery thread , top thread keeps breaking, I've changed the needle don't know what else to try . Please help

Metallic thread is often easier to break when sewing. Make sure the thread is not brittle and old; It may also require "Metallic Embroidery" needles that have a slightly larger needle groove and eye spaces. Also, make sure your thread does not have additional tension on it when being fed from a vertical spool. allow the thread to flow horizontally off of the thread spool into the machine.Or place the spool bottom down on the table next to the machine and let the machine pull it up and over through the machine which needs to be very properly threaded.

When you thread the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot. This allows the thread to seat completely in the tension disk, otherwise you end up with bird nests or thread nests under the fabric.

I'm working with 2 layers of cotton for most of a project but part of it is 2 layers of terry cloth in addition to the cotton and I keep running into trouble with my bottom thread. I'm very new to sewing,...

well, Rose, i could make a few suggestions- but, my wife is the guru of sewing machines- will turn her loose on it later- what make & model? sounds heavy duty. later.

Im trying to sew letters on thin fabric and lace. I think the grip is to ruff for the fabric. how do i fix this?

you will need to have stabiliser behind the fabric to give it stability for any type of machine embroidery.

Look for a product called "stitch and tear" or "solvy" which washes away in water after you've completed the stitching.

Also, consider using machine embroidery thread for this task, its silky and gives a lovely sheen.

I've always used an embroidery hoop to hold the layers all together for monogramming so things don't slip.

I'd suggest you google "machine embroidery" or try and see if there are other machine embroidery tips there.

Cotton breaks on Brother Embroidery Galaxie 2100 machine

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 :)

Stitching trouble

Here is a trouble shooting chart -

I would start with cleaning (see maintenance section of the user's manual).

This has to be done more often with sewing/embroidery machines that have a drop-in bobbin.

Be sure to use bobbin thread for machine embroidery.

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up. This will insure the thread is seating into the tension control.

Problem with Brother Quattro

This is an Embroidery machine. Use a thicker thread if only sewing. If doing embroidery, check your hoop for proper size, and make it tight holding the material.

Threading the needle of the embroidery machine

You may need a magnifying glass to see the tiny hook that should pass through the needle eye to catch the thread....

....if it is not aligned properly and does not go through the eye you will need to realign it....

...there may be a small screw attaching the mechanism, loosen slightly with jewelers screwdriver so you can move it but there is still some friction and gently engage the needle threader to see how far you need to move it, then gently, using a fine screwdriver, tweesers etc, nudge the tiny hook a little, check result and continue to adjust until screw.

If there is no screw adjustment, a gentle bending will resolve the problem............but if there is no tiny hook, it will need replacing.

They are not easily broken, but only use gentle pressure to be sure.
