Question about Brother LS-1217 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Make sure you have enough of a "tail" from teh bobbin... Probably 4 inches or so before starting. If that doesn't work, check upper tension and needle is properly seated.
The needle drags the thread down and then starts back up causing a loop at the eye which a shuttle goes through and acrries the upper thread over the bobbin. The upper thread then drags the bobbing thread up.

When i looked in my bobbin hole i saw the small spring is unattached which is my guess to why it is not grabbing the bobbin thread but where to reatch it is the question!
