Why does my thread keep breaking at the needle?
The thread tension is too tight When the tension is set too high, the thread is stretched greatly from the spool to the needle, causing great tension in the thread and thus the upper thread breaks during sewing. You can reduce the thread tension to see if it improves. A lower number indicates a lower level of tension.

Why is the thread looping under my fabric?
A: Looping on the underside, or back of the fabric, means the top tension is too loose compared to the bobbin tension, so the bobbin thread is pulling too much top thread underneath. By tightening the top tension, the loops will stop, but the added tension may cause breakage, especially with sensitive threads.
