Make sure your machine is set to feed material. There may be a switch or knob somewhere on your machine to lower the "feed dogs" (the little metal teeth that pull the material through the machine). If they are down, the material won't feed so the machine will sew in place. More likely, since its knotting on the bottom, your machine is probably not threaded correctly. Rethread the machine, and try again.
Yes, the thread on the bottom IS the needle thread.

What do you mean you are unable to pull the bobbin thread through, elaboration would help solve the problem...
I suspect I'm having the same problem with you if it's anything to do with the top thread looping around in the bobbin holder.

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.
