Does anyone know why my machine might be doing this? I’m free motion quilting and using Coats and Clark white thread. The top thread breaks after a few stipples. It’s like it thins out and eventually breaks. I’ve changed my needle, adjusted the tension up and down (when I adjusted down a #, the bottom threads were super loose), changed to a different type thread, oiled the gears….what is going on? Any other suggestions? I know in free motion quilting the tension should be lowered some- how low do you usually go?

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
