SOURCE: bobbin wont spin
I had the same problem last night but was able to solved it by flipping the plastic bobbin over and re-seating it on the post. This time it clicked in and I was then able to get the post to spin. Good Luck!

SOURCE: no zig and cotton keeps breaking
Make sure you have a new sharp needle installed for both problems and sometimes you need a particular kind of needle for the fabric. Also some machines don't deal well with 100% cotton thread. For some reason it gets caught up in the machine somewhere and breaks. Gutterman and Metrosene make excellent although slightly more expensive threads. Coats and Clark thread is good too. They make an all cotton thread but it doesn't come in as many colors. If you have the old spools of cotton thread from Walmart, just use them for topstitching if you need the color. Other wise, use them for hand stitching or throw them away. One more thing that I can think of off hand, one of my machines does not like lining fabric. For some reason the thread breaks if I stitch really fast. If you have to use that thread, you may try sewing slowly. One more thing, when was the last time your machine was serviced? This can make a huge difference if it's been awhile and you use the machine a lot. Good luck. Hope any of this helps.

Hi there. If you have an acessory kit with your machine, there should be a plain spindle with a smaller bottom on it. There should also be a small hole on the top or back of your machine where your thread goes.. And yes you can thread both strands of thread thru the same areas till the needle.

you can just use the straight stitch.If you want to use a fancy stitch you have to be careful that the throw, as I call it is not too wide as you could break the needles and put the timing out. Also use a longer stitch than normal.Also use the stretch twin needle.

Twin needles can be used on any machine. Just make sure you use the correct presser foot......one that allows both needles to work without hitting the foot. Also.........you cannot zig-zag or use any other fancy stitch with a twin needle.......it is strictly for straight sewing. You have to use 2 spools of thread .....thread your machine with both threads as if they were one thread but separate the threads when you get to the needle. There is no change to the bobbin. Happy sewing. I can't be bothered to go to all this trouble so I just sew 2 rows to get the same look. Ofcourse you have to be very good at sewing perfectly straight seams doing it this way. Try both methods on a scrap and see which method you prefer.
