I purchased some sulky thread on line for grand daughters new embrodiery machine it's a brother and the. Thread I purchased from hancocks fabric keeps fraying and breaking she changed and put new needle in still doing it. So does anyone else have a brother embrodiery machine and is able to use sulky thread on it ok one friend on another forum said she puts her thread in the freezer. And that helps ???? Never heard of that trick before any suggestions I had ordered 17 spools of thread on sale from them but I'm thinking I did not get good thread

I use Sulky thread in my Baby Lock and it works well. I also use Madeira, Hemingworth, Gunold, and Gutterman with good success.
My machine does what you are describing on some brands. When I first got my machine I had difficutly with a certain brand and contacted the company. They sent a postpaid envelope and asked me to send the thread to them and they replaced it. The replacements worked fine.

I use Sulky threads in my embroidery machine with mo problems. Is she using a embroidery needle? The eyes are bigger andallow the thread to flow through.
