Why Does My Thread Break?

Thread breaks are annoying at best and can happen for a variety of reasons. When they are seemingly continuous they not only waste a lot of time but they can suck the joy right out of a project.

Unfortunately, thread breaks are rather like snowflakes, no two are alike. OK, that may be a stretch, but there are myriad causes. Most can be resolved quickly while others require a little more patience and diligence.
