The impulse is to blame the bobbin, because that's where the thread bunches. But the problem is probably with the top thread tension. The tension is too loose, allowing the bobbin to help itself to all the thread it wants. Retrace the path of the thread from spool to needle and see if you missed anything. The instructions in my VX1005 manual are not clear. I had to try a couple of paths before I got it right. Make sure the spring in the tension disk setup is moving freely. You should feel a fair amount of resistance when you pull on the needle thread. Hope this helps.

If you can't lift the presser foot up at all undo the presser bar screw on top of the presser bar, if you have a dial turn it to 0, you should now be able to move the lever, if it is still tight put some WD40 on the presser bar and leave it for a couple of hours.

Look through these threading guides for a Brother that has the same features. http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Threading_Diagrams.htm
The above site has a manual, but I not a threading guide. Unless it is the same as another model.

Make sure that you have the top thread in all the correct positions. I missed two and had the same problem. When I rethreaded it my problem was solved.
