Testimonial: "Thanks! I was hoping to avoid paying for a fix, but it looks like I have to **** it up. So much for being thrifty and restyling my clothes."
If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.
Let me know.
