thread pick up issues
  • Help, I'm nearly done with the quilt on my Avante and frame and now for some unknown reason, the top thread does not seem to pick up the bobbin thread. Worked when I turned it off but won't catch now!

    There are a couple of things that you can check. First, make sure that the tail you left in the bobbin is long enough for the top thread to pick up. The other thing that you should check is your threading path. Make sure that you have threaded the thread up-take arm. The last thing is to make sure that your needle is in correctly, with the long groove down the front.

    If this doesn't help please contact Handi Quilter at 1-877-697-8458, M-F, 8-5 MST.

    Good luck,
