Thread or needle problems;

Thread or needle breakage,
Thread tension problem,
Bobbin thread that breaks or winds badly
wire stuffing,
Tangled upper thread
Bobbin thread that comes out on top of the work,
Machine that skips stitches…

  • Needle breakage
  • Check threading and tension (the thread is slowed
  • down or pinched somewhere)
  • Unsuitable needle choice
  • Needle inserted incorrectly
  • Upper thread stuck somewhere
  • Possibility of using a felt disc or a net that guides the
  • yarn to prevent it from twisting, knotting, jamming
  • Tension too high
  • Embroidery too thick, poorly digitized (too many
  • overlaps), try again with a new needle without insisting
  • too much, otherwise it may damage the motor of the
  • embroidery machine
  • Unsuitable presser foot, hit by the needle because it is
  • not wide enough to sew the stitch
  • Loose, loose presser foot
  • The fabric is pulled, too thick. Adjust pressure,
  • stabilizer, needle choice


  • Thread tension problem
  • Check upper threading
  • Bobbin incorrectly inserted or incorrectly wound
  • Loose presser foot
  • check upper and lower thread tension
  • Replace the needle
  • Upper thread too tight
  • Bobbin inserted incorrectly, check the tension
  • Upper thread stuck in spool, check threading


Always maintain and treat your machine with care: it will pay you back. Never force by pulling on wires, fabrics, frames, or mechanisms. If you lose patience, take a break. Treat every mistake as a new lesson learned!

Preferably, start by taming linear patterns
before tackling very dense patterns, with several layers of superimposed colors

Thread or needle breakage
Thread or needle is broken
Redo the threading (check the path of the thread), use the appropriate spool pin, a thread holder
Review the installation of the coil on its support
Possibility of using a felt disc or a net that guides the yarn to prevent it from twisting, knotting, jamming
Blunt or bent needle, to be changed (this cannot always be seen with the naked eye)
Needle incorrectly installed (not deep enough in its housing)
Scratches on the bobbin case or needle plate

  • Needle not suitable for thread (e.g. metallic threa
  • Needle unsuitable for the fabric (e.g. thick fabric, jeans,
  • imitation leather, etc.)
  • Top voltage too high
  • Faulty, poor quality or too old thread (poorly stored:
  • light, dust)
  • Twisted wire coming out of the spool
  • Use a spool pin with vertical support that allows the
  • thread to untwist before being embroidered
    Bobbin incompatible with the machine (this cannot always be seen with the naked eye)

Bobbin thread breakage

  • Bobbin incorrectly inserted (refer to the instructions for
  • your machine)
  • Scratches on the bobbin or the bobbin does not turn
  • correctly (replace it)
  • Do not oil modern machines
  • There are pieces of thread or dust in the perimeter of the
  • bobbin. Remove the bobbin and needle plate and clean

Bobbin thread that winds badly or unevenly

  • Check threading (carefully follow the manual threading
  • instructions)
  • Decrease speed
  • Check the correct insertion of the bobbin
  • Start filling the bobbin by hand, or check that th
  • thread is passed through the top hole of the bobbin 
  • and held for the first few turns before cutting it
