Question about Sewing Machines
Yes this is lint that should be vacuumed out after every 8 hours of sewing. Sometimes we see this lint build up to the point the machine will break gears. Often the lint between the feed dogs and needle plate will keep the fabric from feeding.
You can purchase sewing machine oil at any sewing machine store. It is non staining and 10 weight. You can also use Triflow as another option. Triflow has a generic Teflon in it that leaves a slippery residue for a long time.
If your machine is hard to turn with the hand wheel it may be a bearing or gear issue.
You may enjoy a new machine with the control that allows you to put the needle up or down with the touch of the foot control. After using one of these you will never want to sew on a machine that does not have the pivot on the needle function.

Firstly make sure when you thread the machine you have the sewing foot in the up position or the thread will not sit in the tension and cause this problem. Also as it is a new machine it may have a small amount of oil from transport stopping the tension discs from separating. Try sliding the folded edge of a piece of fabric with the foot up through the tension unit it may clear the oil away.

SOURCE: My machine will not sew
When sewing anything that is rubberized you should use silicon spray this will help the fabric move along and will keep the needle from accumulating the rubber buildup and sticking in the bobbon casing.

If you have the manual take a better look at how to put the bobbin in the case,
sounds like you are putting it in wrong,
make sure you put the bobbin in with the thread com-ming off the bobbin in the right direction (left or right) if not put in the right way you will get what you are saying
ALSO: bring up the bobbin thread your self by turning the hand wheal and bring the thread a few inches to the back of the needle and hold when starting to sew the first 2-5 stitches.
when you do not hold the thread the machine will pull the thread in the bobbin area and cause problems.
you will get use to holding and it will get easier.
hope this helps
