Single loose thread on top

We are having an issue with Avante HQ 18, the stitches look perfect both on top and bottom, but every once in a while, like once in a row, we have a loose thread on top. We don't see a pattern to it, we have uses various fabrics, needles and threads. The thread does not break so we are able to work it in, but of course that leaves loose stitching. Any idea's

  • Wandamorrison,

    Try and tighten your top thread tension slightly and see if that helps. Also, make sure that your quilt is not too tight on the frame. If it is bouncing when you are quilting it is too tight.

    Good luck,
