Solve your thread frustrations: Thread Delivery!

Posted: 3 August 2015 at 6 a.m.

Thread breakage giving you issues? 

Sometimes, after rethreading your machine, changing needles, and trying everything with tensions--the thread is still breaking!  The next step is to check your thread delivery method.  Dr. Bob explains how thread delivery affects your stitches in this segment of Thread Therapy.

Using a Superior spool?  Make sure you take the Snap Cap off before you start stitching!

    What useful information. You definitely answered some of my questions. I sometime find that the soles of the cone break or chip very easily. Using the cone stand does help somewhat to prevent the thread to hook onto the broken piece, depending on how and where the cone broke. I am currently working on an idea to prevent this by cutting a circle from thick board and glue that to the bottom of the cone. Do you have a better idea and or gadget to help out on this problem? I bought myself one of the lightweight cone holders which is really a big frustration. My husband eventually glued some heavy weighted steel to the bottom and Voila, it works great.

    Love the video - love your explanations, love your thread and your thread holder. You are absolutely correct about the cheap hobby/craft store thread holder. I hated it and threw it away and bought one of yours!!!
