I'm a new Capri quilter and I am trying to use 100 wt thread. I have an 80 wt in the bobbin. I have loosened the bobbin tension, have only threaded through 2 holes on the triple hole thing, lowered the top tension. I've tried many different combinations of tensions changing the top and the bottom and the top thread keeps breaking. Sometimes it will stitch for a few minutes and then break... The only thing I haven't tried is a thread net (don't have one) but I've read that it should work without it. I've rethreaded numerous times and checked that the machine is threaded correctly. The top tension was down to 50, how low can you go with it?
I have tried size 12 and 14 needles.
Any help appreciated!!
