While sewing on towels, it helps to use a wash away stabalizer also on the top surface. Also, you may want to wash the towel first. this will soften the surface.

While sewing the thread keeps busting


Hello Rachel, Too much needle tension can cause the thread to break. Old thread becomes weak and breaks easier than new thread. Wrap some of your thread around your fingers on both hands and try to pull the thread apart. If it breaks easily, try some new thread.

Why does my thread keep breaking?


Thread your machine with the pressure foot up. As you're threading be very aware of snags; especially the tension control(Don't thread the needle yet) Now, if this doesn't seem to be a problem put your pressure foot down. Pull on the thread with your hand. If it is real hard to pull you need to lower the tension. You may also take a QTIP with the tension at zero and the pressure foot up.Try to clean the tension control between the washers. Also, make sure your thread is good. Many poor quality threads will make a ball in the needle and tension control that becomes a problem like broken needles.

I folded over a terry cloth towel and now my machine isn't working right?


The thread is incorrect for material.
: or incorrect size needle or it is bent.
:Not threaded correctly.
Thread tangled around the spool holder.
: Thread too thick for needle or too thin.
Hope one of these helps.

Husklock 910: D thread keeps breaking.


I believe the thread is not seated correctly in the tension discs, place one hand in front and one hand behind disc while threading and press thread into tension that way it gets seated.

Thread keeps breaking, can't seem to get the


1. Maybe you are using the wrong size machine needle or poor quality thread.
2. You must always lift the presser foot before threading the machine to release the tension discs.
3. Maybe you have broken thread stuck in the discs or bobbin race. Give them a clean. Pull a thicker thread by hand through the tension discs when the presser foot is up.

Thread breaking with my MegaQuilter,


The problem you describes sounds like it maybe caused by a burr along the thread path. Does the thread shred or does it appear to be cut? Does this only happen with so fine or with other threads as well? Take your finger or if that doeswork use a cotton ball, along the thread path, you are looking for a sharp spot that will be causing your thread to shred. Change you needle for a new one, Make sure you put it in the correct way. Also if these don't do the trick hand wheel the needle up and down a few times. make sure that there isn't a burr in the throat plate from a broken needle and observe near the bobbin case and timing finger that the needle isn't rubbing against something( you might want to use a magnifing glass). i hope this helps. I know how frustrating it can be .

No zig and cotton keeps breaking


Make sure you have a new sharp needle installed for both problems and sometimes you need a particular kind of needle for the fabric. Also some machines don't deal well with 100% cotton thread. For some reason it gets caught up in the machine somewhere and breaks. Gutterman and Metrosene make excellent although slightly more expensive threads. Coats and Clark thread is good too. They make an all cotton thread but it doesn't come in as many colors. If you have the old spools of cotton thread from Walmart, just use them for topstitching if you need the color. Other wise, use them for hand stitching or throw them away. One more thing that I can think of off hand, one of my machines does not like lining fabric. For some reason the thread breaks if I stitch really fast. If you have to use that thread, you may try sewing slowly. One more thing, when was the last time your machine was serviced? This can make a huge difference if it's been awhile and you use the machine a lot. Good luck. Hope any of this helps.

The needles on my Janome 9102D keep breaking


I had a similar problem with my machine. What I've started doing with mine is setting the stitch length at 3 and the differential feed ratio at 1.0 then I set all 4 thread tensions at 3. I thread the machine from right to left, and then when everything seems to be working okay I take scrap material to test the tension and then set them to suit the material I'm using. Right now I'm working with a twill so my settings are 4-4-5-5. This seems to have stopped the thread slipping off the bottom looper and I haven't had any more needles break. I hope this is helpful.
