This is the first time I have used the wave stitch on a project and I am using it on serged placemats. I am having problems with the thread breaking. I have rethreaded and and put in a new needle - it seems to happen where the seams are heaviest. I have had no problems with overlocking or rolled hem with the same thread so I don't think it is the thread. Have any of you had the same issue with the wave stitch? thanks for your help!

I just did a tablerunner with the wave stitch, but there were no seams. Is the thread 'catching' on something? Sometimes it catches on the slit on a thread spool when I forget to put the cap on. Try 'walking' the needles over a sample with some seams. Let us know how you're doing.

thank you for the reply - I did check the thread spool to see if it was catching and didn't feel or see anything. I unthreaded and rethreaded again and I lengthened the stitch a little. I did get them finished and only had to rethread the needle a couple of times. I will have to try this stitch on another project that doesn't have seams and see how it goes. I have the Evolve also and have never had a problem with thread breaking but it didn't have the wave stitch so I am not sure if it is the machine or stitch or something else. I think I need a lot more practice.
