Question about Simplicity SE3 Computerized Sewing Machine
Am in middle of embroidering and the fabric is stuck in the hole where the bobbin is. How do I get the fabric unstuck? Thank you
Turn off the machine and remove the needle.
Lift the presser foot and remove the inner hoop and then the rest of the hoop.
Move the fabric to one side and cut the threads with a seam ripper.
Open the needle plate.
Remove the bobbin and bobbin case.
Clean away any thread or lint in this area.
You should repeat the last three steps routinely as lint and thread snips can accumulate in these area and cause mis-stitching.
Replace the bobbin case, bobbin and needle plate.
Use a new needle.

Your top thread could be broken or about to break; your bobbin thread could be broken, about to break or empty/about to become empty and is loose around the bobbin; you could have a birds' nest (a mass of thread just under the fabric/presser foot and/or within the feed dog and bobbin) forming and causing a jam; or it could be your Futura having a little bit of a hissy fit. Obviously, if you've checked for broken thread you need to move on. Check for a birds' nest by removing the fabric and clip your threads. If you find one, clear it, rethread your bobbin and begin sewing again. If there's no birds' nest, then place the fabric back in and try sewing/embroidering again. If the machine acts up again, I recommend removing the fabric/hoop, rethreading your top and bobbin threads, replacing fabric/hoop and resuming where you left off. If the machine still gives you trouble, try hitting the start button for a couple of times and seeing if the problem doesn't simply resolve itself. When you're embroidering areas that have a few small, short stitches only, the machine seems to act up a little and then behaves fine once you bypass the area. Be sure to take all of the other steps first, though, because a birds' nest will RUIN a beautiful seam or embroidery.
