Question about Sewing Machines
We are at a loss. :(
The thread keeps snapping on the new Euro Pro 464 XC 32 Stitch sewing machine we got our daughter for xmas. We followed the instructions best we can but the bobbin threading instructions don't make much sense.
We can't even find the friggin MODEL of this machine on their web site! :((
I have the same machine with the same issues. I am so frustrated! Here is how I am going to solve my problem in 4 simple steps:
Step 1. Open garbage can.
Step 2. Throw piece of **** supposed sewing machine into can.
Step 3. Cover garbage can, cursing loudly.
Step 4. Purchase a brand name sewing machine with a real warranty!

I bought a Euro Pro Shark Intelli Sew on Craig's list. I used it just fine for several months; now the thread keeps breaking no matter what I do. I have to go super slow to keep it from breaking, then it still breaks. It's very difficult to thread and the bobbin situation is very unclear. Too darned bad, I guess. :(

I have the same machine and it is a nightmare to use for us newbies. I think I will return mine and buy a higher quality machine, I feel sad about that because I am so excited and don't want to spend more.

I also have the same sewing machine. The machine is not very user friendly and the instruction manual doesn't really illustrate the right way to thread the machine. For the bobbin, make sure you thread it through the two tiny holes in the small rectangular metal piece in the bobbin case. I had to use a dental floss threader and tweezers to thread the bobbin correctly, if you can believe it! As for the upper thread, follow the directions EXACTLY as illustrated in the manual. Don't miss the little loop underneath the machine or the tension will be wrong.
Also, use extra strong thread. I used a professional quality break-resistant thread from Germany for both the bobbin and top thread, and the machine works okay.

1) Use a strong polyester type thread, NOT FINE COTTON
2) Use a low tension,nuber 2 for exanple
3) Always check the threading, if in doubt rethread all the way
from the top bottom making sure you pass roun and not
through thr fixed holder spring.
4) Make sure the thread moves freely with the tension disc held
to the right while pulling the thread through the needle
5) Be very careful that the thread is pulled up from the lower
bobbin correctly and check theree is no muddle or stray
thread under the cover
6 Dont pull on the fabric (not thick for beginning) - just guide it
