I've been sewing since I could manage a needle but I have no idea.... sometimes my machine just jams and you have to pull it all out and start over....

It sucks

 






I am a Satanist, vaccinating, formula feeding, disposable diapering, cosleeping, elective csection having, college attending,  living with my boyfriend, thinking about converting back to Christianity..... WAIT FOR IT.....  Mommy to a precious little girl named Kailee Virginia Dawn born 9/16/08 weighing 8 pounds 7 ounces and 21 inches long and raising my teenage sister as well... Is any of this something you have a problem with??? Unfortunately I don't think I care...



I'm outspoken, opinionated, and determined. I want what I want and there is nothing wrong with that. So try to stomp on me, try to douse my inner flame, try to squash every ounce of beauty I hold within me but you won;t succeed!!! And if that makes me a BITCH so be it.... I embrace the title and am proud to bear it

I sew all the time and make clothes and baby blankets. The bobbin is in wrong or the machine is threaded wrong take a minute and look over it. If it is from the bottom it is usually one of those things. If not check the thread tension. Make sure you keep your machine clean where the bobbin is and oiled to.

My bet is on thread tension. I have trouble with this all the time.

More than likely, you need to clean it.  Open the part where you put in the bottom thread ( the bobbin ) & take the bobbin out.  Pay close attention to how the assembly looks, or take a pic of it if you have a digital camera.  Take it apart & give everything in there a good dusting with a brush.  It is made to take out very easily, to clean.  That is most often why my machine does that.  If that doesn't work, we'll try something else.
