Question about Necchi Sewing Machines
SOURCE: bottom thread is looping.
If the thread is looping on the bottom, then your problem is on the top. Pull the thread out of the needle and and put the presser foot down. If the thread pulls thru easily, then you need to rethread your machine making sure the thread is thru the top tension wheel correctly.
Rule of thumb::
Loops on the bottom, Problem on the top
Loops on the top, problem on the bottom.

Before the thread goes though the uptake lever, it goes though the tension (a round "knob" with numbers).
When threading the machine, lift the presser foot. This opens the tension control so the thread can enter and then when the foot is down and you begin to sew, the tension setting will determine how much thread should feed to the needle.
The setting is usually around 4. However, if this is an older machine that has been used a lot and serviced a little, the tension may not work as it should.
Try different settings and if you cannot get a proper stitch, you will need to determine if the machine should be serviced or if you should purchase a new one - service and parts can be 1/2 the price of a decent, new machine.

Make sure the presser foot is up when threading any sewing machine.

On a sewing machine, the first "knob" in the threading process is usually the tension.
Try threading the machine with the presser foot up, first. Sew a few stitches and then make adjustments as needed - right is a tighter and left is looser when turning the tension adjustment.
I would recommend buying sewing machine. These little gadgets are cute, but they just don't do that well and are not worth the stress they create.
