Question about Janome Hello Kitty 11706 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Sounds like you've got a thread jam going on. Take the bobbin and bobbin case out, take the needle plate (=throat plate) off the machine, and clean all the lint and bits of thread and other gunge out of there. Reassemble. Rethread with the presser foot up. Fetch up the bobbin thread and pull bobbin and top thread ends under and behind the presser foot. Then start each seam like this:
1. Fabric under the presser foot; lower needle with handwheel or needle up/down key into the beginning of the seam.
2. Drop the presser foot.
3. Hold the ends of the bobbin and top thread behind the presser foot while you take the first 2-3 stitches
4. Drop the thread ends and sew normally.
