I have spent days doing all the stitching around the applique and the SID on a pretty quilt I spent weeks making. Finally got to the FUN part using 7 spools of Rainbow Variegated thread. All I have done for the last three hours is pick out every single bit of it because it keeps on breaking!!!! No burrs. Remember I finished all the SID and outline stitching without a single break, BUT I was using regular thread for that (not variegated and not Rainbow). I have the bobbin so loose it drops to the floor. The tension is completely loose on top and I am not using the hook. I've tried using and not using it. Breaks faster if in it, which means it breaks after 5 stitches instead of 10. )-: Of course, it is Saturday, so I can't call anyone. I read all the APQS tips. Turned the eyes around. Changed the needle twice. Don't have another spool of the same color thread. The entire quilt is BATIKS. Does anyone know how to get this thread to behave? TIA,
