Be very sure you have the presser foot up when you thread the machine so the thread goes between the discs, make sure the needle is in the correct way round and make sure you have not bent or damaged the needle, this will cause the hook not to pick up the thread. Ken firstname.lastname@example.org

I was going to say maybe you are putting the bobbin in the bobbincase upside down. When you put the bobbin in the case correctly and pull the thread the bobbin should turn clockwise. Otherwise since its not picking up the thread the hook point isn't meeting up with the loop as the needle rises past the hook point and its out of time. This is an adjustment for a tech unless I wrote two pages explaining it. Good luck. Rick

Try "Schmetz" needles -- they are longer than other needles and the salesman told us they were required for this machine. When I used Singer needles the top thread hardly ever picked up the bobbin thread and it skipped inches of stitches. Changing to Schmetz solved the problem.

I had this problem and I just fixed it, your machine is threaded wrong, or the tension is wrong. Mine turned out to be a little of both. I was threading the tension wrong. I was threading it (when facing the machine) going in left to right, so it kept falling out. YOU MUST THREAD GOING IN RIGHT TO LEFT, then finish the threading process until you end at threading the neadle. NOW IT WORKS. I HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU ALSO.

If your daughters sewing machine works fine then put your shuttle driver in the same place as hers in your machine. If that dosn't work then i can't help
