Question about Husqvarna Designer I
You may have a small amount of lint stuck in the machine somewhere...or the thread is hanging up somewhere in the thread process.
If you have a drop in bobbin, make sure it spins counter clockwise when in the machine.
If you have a front or side loading bobbin...make sure that when you have the bobbin case (with the bobbin in it) laying in the palm of your hand, so you see the bobbin...that the bobbin spins counter clockwise (when the bobbin case is in the machine, the thread is going clockwise). This can be confusing.
Try a new needle.
Also, if you are working with cottons or any WOVEN fabrics, you want to use a sharp (topstitch is great, has larger eye for easier threading), or a universal needle. For Knits or polyester...fleece, minkie, etc...use a ball point needle. If you use a ball point needle on wovens, or a sharp/universal on knits, you will get skipped stitches.
When your machine is threaded, and the foot is down...pull on the thread (pull towards the back of the machine) coming out of the needle...the needle will flex a little (not a lot) and then the thread will pull out...will be hard, but the thread should not break. Most tensions for sewing are between 4-5 on the dial. If your dial has no numbers...then 1/8 of a turn, test & if its still breaking, loosen a tad more and try again.
Always hold onto the top and bobbin thread until you have taken a few stitches, this will prevent nesting and jamming.
I don't have a machine like yours, but am giving you what I have learned over the years from the many, many machines I have owned.
If none of the above work, you may need to have the machine serviced, as the timing may be off a bit.
