Thread breaking/shreds

edited August 2013 in Ask An HQ Expert
My thread keep breaking/shreds when I go from right to left. I have a Avante.


  • While I understand there is a greater chance for shredding when going right to left, is there a solution to prevent this from happening?
  • Dragonfly57,

    Sometimes if you slow down it will help. Also, going short distances at a time can help. However, it is still best to go from left to right.

    Good luck,

  • For me the solution was to rotate my needle from the "6 o'clock" position to about "5:30" and it stopped my shredding/breaking problems.
