    I'm FMQ quilting with 'regular' thread on the bottom and invesible thread on top. I've gotten 1/2 the quilt finished and now my thread keeps breaking. I've re-threaded the machine like 10000 times (lol) but it still keep breaking. Any suggestions? I'm getting frusterated and I reallllly want to finish this quilt.

    Invisible thread is not happy when it gets hot. Change the needle and turn the machine off for a while. Sounds like voodoo, but it works for me!

    I agree, even my Bernina wants this once in a while.

    Yep - change the needle,blow out the dust and lint and walk away. When you come back all calm and happy, give it a little hug and a kiss before you start. It works everytime with mine.
