Change the stabilizer that you are using. Brother works well with tear away stabilizer. It solved my problem once and never happened again.

Use a needle with a bigger eye in it. I use a top stitching needle in my machine, has a really big eye, my thread rarely breaks.

So you solved your problem? Did you bring it to the dealer and had it removed? I havent done anything yet - I embroider with the machine open!?

i use a ripper and pass the thread over the little piece of plastic and it works fine! still can't figure why that plastic point is there? any tips on good thread for bobbins, embroidery, quilting and piecing? it gets so confusing when you have a machine that does it all! thanks.

Make sure to have your embroidery machine tensions set properly. Having the tension too high pulls too tight on your thread, leading it to break. Test and adjust the tension on your machine regularly and as needed. Machine your machine for burrs, or any knicks or scratches on any of the metal parts of the machine.
