Needle breakage can mean that you don't have the needle inserted correctly, you have the wrong size needle for the machine, you are pulling the fabric instead of letting the machine take it on it's own. Thread coming off the needle is usually operator error... make sure you grasp both threads as you start your seam.

Also if you are certain your needle is correct for this machine... take it in for servicing by a pro... it is likely that the needle is striking something and breaking... that means it's out of time... or perhaps a bent part.

SOURCE: How do I change the stiches?

You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

http://www.jo-ann.com/joann/product/images/52659.jsp?CATID=cat3122&PRODID=prd11333

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.

SOURCE: replace a motor belt for sewing machine

The top tension is dependent not just on the tension dial, but also on the little disks that you go through to thread the machine. If it is not threaded correctly, you will get bunching underneath. Sometimes I just have to rethread the machine-- when you get to the disks- hold the thread taut and push it through the disks before going up to the arm part. Here is a threading picture I found- but it doesn't point out the disks too much. Once the machine is stitching nicely, then the tension dial can be used to flatten out the stitches.

Finding info on an old Empisal Pixie Ann sewing machine offered for sale


when beginning to sew a good 2nd hand sewing machine is a good idea,, a sewing machine with metal parts is better than any others,
it will hold up better singer,,necchi, some brother sewing machines
are made with metal gear that hold up good.
if you can try sewing on the sewing machine before you buy it, you
really don't want to buy someone else's problem. repairing a
sewing machine can be expensive.
make sure you can get a manual for the machine,, so that you can
learn what the sewing machine can do & how to thread the sewing
will the person who owns the sewing machine let you see that it
will sew?
is it in good condition?
does it have a manual that comes with it?
does it have all it's parts & power cord & foot pedal?
machine, what stitches it will do.
people will tell you anything to sell a sewing machine , if the part
are not all there then leave the sewing machine there too.

here's a site with some reviews about the machine
