Hello all, My needle continuously break. Millennium, usually in stitch regulator mode. Seems like I am moving the machine head faster than the needle moves and the needle breaks. I rarely get through a quilt without 2-3 needs breaking, Sometimes more. Any troubleshooting guidance is appreciated. So frustrating to operate this way. Thank you, Jamie Bennett
JeannieB posted a topic in Ask The Expert - Thread, Needle, BobbinsI'm quilting an aggie tshirt quilt (which I've done lots of tshirt quilts on Millie), however, on 3 rows I get these odd, top thread breaks on the back of the quilt. I'm using So Fine clear Monopoly on Top, Bottom Line thread on the bottom. the customer choose Hobbs 80/20 cotton (which I've used before). I have a bobbin case that I use with Monopoly thread that is a whole lot looser than what I normally quilt with. I've changed bobbins, changed needles, cleaned and oiled everything, checked my check spring, loosened the top thread tension, tweaked the bottom thread tension, shortened the length of my top stitches, checked how high my hopping foot is and done everything that I could find on the forum before. And then, the problem quit ... like two rows after the last tweak. Any suggestions as to what might have gone wrong? but the more important question is, how do i fix the quilt? thanks!
