Ok...i'll give it another go...and here I might not have NEEDED to buy the new machine afterall????? if all it was was putting the dumb bobbin in upsidedown?????
my first problem was that the thread on the spool kept getting caught on the notch...and the thread would break...but I did figure that out...
Thanks so very much for your help!!!!! I"ll revisit the manual that is written in PICTURES, NOT words, and a lady wearing a nice pump...yeah..I'm lucky if I have SHOES on, and the order of them goes from 1,2 5, 4, 6, 7. (notice there is no THREE.....and they are compeltly OUT of order.
I DID have it threaded on the top wrong......but what it has to do with the bottom??? I've NO idea...I even got through about 6 patches with NO problem, and then it goofed up again...I looked at the weaving and threading, adn it got unhooked somewhere.
I even felt adventerous enough to try my hand at zigzag...and REALLY re-enforce those babies down..(the tryits with STRAIGHT stitches!!!)...whew..now to cut all those threads, but that's another day.
Thanks for your help..NOT going to turn it back in...
