Question about Sewing Machines
I am trying to thread my machine. i successfully threaded the bobbin, but when i put the bobbin in my machine to thread it in with the needle to start sewing, the thread keeps getting jammed and wrapped around everything down in the bobbin holder area. (I'm not a pro sewer) I kept trying and then started all over with a new bobbin. Still was doing it. I know how to place the bobbin in the holder and thread the needle and everything, but my machine keeps getting a jammed up.
Are you making sure that your pressure foot is up when you thread the upper thread? If it isn't then your thread is not seating correctly in the tension disks. It will then be loose and make a birds nest(mess) under what you are trying to sew. The other thing to check is which way you are putting the bobbin into the bobbin case, different machines do it different ways. Some want the thread to come out of the case in the same direction as the slot on the case and some want it to come off in the opposite direction.
Probably when your son broke the needle he knocked it out of time. You will need to have a sewing machine technician to repair that.
Hope this has been helpful for you bothl Liz M
