    4th Charity Quilt

    I have been fighting with my longarm all day. The bobbin thread keeps breaking and I can't figure out why. The tension is perfect. Any suggestions?? Completed all the check steps, cleaning, oiling, rethreading, trying a new bobbin, etc. The machine sews for about 1 foot and then bam the bobbin thread had been chopped off. This is a new one on me
    This is my 4th charity quilt, pattern from Missouri Quilt Company on YouTube. Forgot the name of it though. Take four 2 1/2" strips sew them together, then take another four 2 1/2" strips and sew together. Then layout the two on top of each other and cut the same width as the strip. This must be clear as mud. Anyway it is a really easy pattern and great way to use up your scraps.
    Thanks so much for looking.

    Have you tried a different thread? Sometimes there is a bad batch that goes out. I don't have a LAQ machine but I have found that shutting down, walking away, cursing a bit and then coming back clears things up on my DSM. good luck with troubleshooting.

    Beautiful work, check and make sure thread is not getting hung on something, even maybe thread caught in bobbin area out of sight.
