SOURCE: Threading & bobbin won't pick up
Make sure the needle is inserted all the way in with the long groove to the left.
Threading is through 1)the thread guide 2)The tension 3)The take up lever 4) The needle eye (left to right).
Remove the needle plate, thread the machine. Turn the hand wheel and watch the thread in the needle to see if it is above the eye of the needle. If it is, the machine needs to be retimed.

Check your manual to see which way the flat side of the needle shank should face. With modern machines, it's usually to the rear, away from you, but with older machines there was more variation.
The most common reason the needle won't pick up the bobbin thread is because the flat side of the needle is facing the wrong way for that machine.
Hope this helps!
