Why am I getting thread breaks?

Created by Michael Woodward Jan 25, 2019 15:35:57 PM Published in Generic embroidery related FAQ's 263 Views.

Common causes of thread breaks:

  • The needle can be worn out if you’ve been using it for a long period of time or on thick materials.
  • Your machine may be threaded incorrectly. Check the thread passage to make sure all the threads are correctly positioned.
  • Threads might be damaged or old.
  • Prolonged exposure to air, light and heat can make your thread brittle. To prevent breaks, store thread in a dark, cool place.
  • Hooping may not be tight enough.
  • The tension might be too loose or too tight.
  • The thread quality may be poor.
  • The design quality may be poor.
