    Check your tension....sometimes you have to tweak it a bit...make sure you only take it back to "O" but don't go any futher than that...I have mine set just a little before....also if your needle is dull it will create those problems as well...hope that helps..

    Hi Pam, I keep my Mega Quilter on the frame as I have another one that I use for piecing. As suggested check to make sure that you have threaded it correctly and that the tension dial is set between 2-3 when you lift up the pressure foot. For the longest time I was using Mettler thread which started to break on me also. I went to my quilt store and the ladies there suggested that I try Presencia Thread and it works great, but you need to clean out the bobbin area. Let us know if this helps. Have fun quilting

    Our rep recommends Aurofil for this machine; I love the thread and I love the machine.
