Re: brother XR65 twin needle threading
Hi roscoepc1.....The threading pattern is identical to single needle. The only changes are that you now are threading 2 spools of thread, one thread for each needle. The only change that I reccommend, but not neccessary, is that while threading through the tension dial, lay your threads between separate discs, and not together between the same pair of discs. Your tension dial contains either 3 or 4 discs.......please update your post if you have any further information or questions.....good luck my friend

Do you mean the Brother Innov-is 1250D embroidery machine? Insert your twin needle. Follow the normal directions for threading the upper thread and manually place this thread through the eye of the left-hand needle from front to back. For the right hand needle, insert the extra spool pin in the bobbin winder shaft. It gets put on perpendicular to the shaft. Swing down the spool pin so that it is horizontal, pointing towards the needle bar. Place another spool of thread on this spool pin and secure it with the appropriate-sized spool cap. The thread should come off the top front of the spool. Follow the threading directions for the upper thread from step 8 (the thread guide cover) through step 10. Do not run this second thread through the needle bar thread guide. Manually thread the right hand needle eye. Make sure to use the zig-zag foot with the twin needle.
Probably depends what that needle is hitting that is causing it to break. Make sure the presser foot and the needle plate hole are large enough to accommodate the twin needle. Twin needles come in different widths so if yours is too wide, it would break. However, it could be possible that your machine is slightly out of alignment that does not show up until you try to use a twin needle. Also, make sure that your thread is not causing the needle to break--could be misthreading. Some machines have separate guides and tension disks for twin threads. Those that don't have that accommodation may have more difficulty using a twin needle.
Your owner's manual should have instructions for using a twin needle.
Most machines can use a twin needle. However, some machines have two tension disks so one can separate the two threads and get equal tension. (The Bernina 930 has two tension disks, so am assuming your newer machine does also.) Look at the top of your machine where the tension mechanism resides and see if there is a right and left side. In either case, do NOT thread both threads at the same time as the threads can become twisted. When threading the machine, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, thread one thread completely. If threading the left side of the tension disk, also thread the left needle. Then thread the second thread, making sure to use the other side of the tension disk and needle.
Just a reminder to be careful using any zig-zag or decorative stitches since a twin needle requires a narrower stitch width to avoid broken needles.
check to see if the twin needle are damaged
check the bobbin & make sure the bobbin case is thread correctly
needle & thread may not be compatable
here's how to check
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread
