Stitching coming out is usually an indication that the top or bottom thread is not under tension during seaming.

Check the bobbin thread is under tension (held by a tension spring) and is firm if you pull gently on it.

Ditto for the top tension, dial should be set to a mid number like 5, lower the pressure foot and then pull the thread just before the needle. Does it feel firm?

If you don't have a manual or aren't sure on threading path, its a good idea to track down a manual on-line or a generic threading diagram may suit.

Try, or to try and find the info specific for your machine.

What do I set for straight stitch on the shark euro-pro 384

It should automatically be set on straight stitch when it is switched on. Which means the needle is in the centre. (Hope this wasn't the reason you were given it.)
You can try Manuals on line as Euro Pro is hard to get hold of.

The needle will not pick up thread from the bobbin

Remove bobbin and be sure the bobbin thread is correctly placed into the machine. Put fabric, place feed dogs up, pressure lever down, hold the thread from the needle and stitch one stitch. This will have the needle go down and pull up the thread. You will never have a clump of thread under your fabric!

Do search for TT600 when given the model number (do NOT use TT600X since it wll say not found). It's a very nice manual that is in PDF format.
