Your thread just broke. Or is shredding. Or is plain misbehaving.
We know the feeling. Suddenly something easy and fun is difficult and frustrating.
Before taking your machine apart, giving up, or tearing up, try this one simple fix:
RETHREAD YOUR MACHINE
Issues occur when the thread is not securely on the thread path. As you can see in the picture below, the thread may not be securely in the take up lever.
The answer may seem too simple to be true, but any time you have an issue with sewing always, always, always try rethreading the machine first.
After carefully rethreading your machine, if you’re still experiencing issues please follow the steps in our Thread Troubleshooting Guide.
