    Splices in the thread.

    I just had three splices in two rolls of C&C thread. Broke the thread every time as the splices will pass through the guides, tensions but won't pass through the eye of the needles. Bamm broken thread.

    May not be your problem, but next time it happens look close for a little tiny tied off splice at the end of the thread.

    I had trouble with thread breaking while FMQing on my 401A. No matter what I tried, it always broke when I tried to move to the left. I finally gave up and now use my vintage Bernina exclusively for FMQing.

    I still quilt with my 401A when using the walking foot, no problems there.

    No biggie. Neither can I most of the time.
