Thread breaking/shreds
  • My thread keep breaking/shreds when I go from right to left. I have a Avante.
  • Dear Peppermint,
    I am sorry that your thread is breaking and shredding when you quilt right to left.
    When one stitches right to left in a straight or serpentine line, there is a higher chance of this happening.
    It is because of the relationships of the hook, needle and thread. When you are stitching an edge to edge, it is better because one is going up, down, back and forward. I hope this helps.

    Good Luck,
