Question about Sewing Machines
My 40 yr old elna was sewing just fine last night, now it won't make a stitch and something seems to be rubbing too tight in the bobbin area..can anyone help? I'm working like crazy on costumes for Saturday night!
Sounds like either some thread jammed in the bobbin area, or possibly it got knocked out of "time"-as you know a sewing machine is just that-a well tuned machine that has movements that have to occur in sequence. Were you sewing anything heavier than normal? I have knocked my Janome out of "time" twice by sewing something too heavy for the needle or the machine in general. I have also had thread wad up under the bobbin. Re-alignment or whatever they call it is not real expensive but would result in some downtime for your machine.
