Question about Sewing Machines
My daughters prolectrix 8 stitch sewing machine won't pick up the bobbin thread. she has used it before and it was ok, unfortunately she has also left the instruction manual at her student accomodation.
Does she have the right needle in? If the needle is to short it won't pick up the thread. If that is not the issue than it could be timing

- You could be holding the needle thread too tight.
Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.
- The needle could be thread incorrectly.
Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.

Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.
