It is not that the thread is not being picked, it is just that the tension of both the top and bottom threads is not equal. That is why the thread at the bottom gets collected because the lower thread is loose compared to the top one. Loosen the top thread by unscrewing the thread tightner a little at a time. The problem will be sorted out when tension get equal or near equal.

Hi. This can be terribly frustrating, but the most likely cause for the bobbin thread not catching is that the needle is inserted wrong. There is a flat side on the shank of every needle and that has to be facing a specific way on your machine or the needle's grooves can't make the stitch. On most modern machines, it's my experience that the flat side goes to the rear, facing away from the operator, but some of my older machines need the flat side facing to the left or to the right.
Another thing that can cause the bobbin thread not to pick up is a bent needle, but in my experience it's usually the needle not in correctly.
(Cost me $85.00 to find this out!)
Let me know if this works, ok?
