Question about Bernina Virtuosa 160
Check to make sure that the timing is correct for the loop to be made..guessing 3- 4 mm past bottom center. also the thread size can make a difference. it may be catching in the basket at the positioning finger for the basket.it must be able to slip past the finger to create a stitch. hope that helps point you in the correct direction.

Sounds like a bottom tension problem, to be sure I would have to have a look, I would suggest you have it looked at. Not sure about the materials you are sewing and have serious doubts as to whether the machine you are using is up for the job and will give you a satisfactory finish. It is possible a "walking foot" machine is what you need.

What looks like a bobbin problem is sometimes the threading of the top thread.
If you threaded the machine with the presser foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter as it should.
Improper seating of the thread into the tension results in loopy stitching as the thread is not being guided at the proper tension to create a satisfactory stitch.
Try re-threading the machine with the presser foot up.

you have a drop feed mechanism make sure you have not dropped the teeth
down by mistake, make sure you have enough pressure on the foot,
remember you should not be able to pull the fabric through by hand if
the teeth are up.
Make sure the teeth are not pushed down . i believe this is the problem you have

If you are using buttonhole twist or heavy topstitch and normal thread underneath machine tensions wont like it. Try using regular thread top and bottom but use two same colour on top and thread both through needle but put one either side of tension discs if you can. Top stitching jeans is problematic for manymachines even Berninas

it's very possible that the machine is slightly out of time & needs to be service at a sewing machine shop
is the fabric & thread & needle compatable with each other?
did you use every thread guide when threading the machine?
is the bobbin in correctly?
is the bobbin warped?
