sewing machine is being evil

okay, i was in a middle of a sewing project when my machine decide to go on the fritz. maybe someone could help me out with this one. kk the problem is the lower thread of the machine-the bobbin-keeps getting tangle up, it almost feels like its getting stuck, I redid the bobbin, took machine apart to clean where the bobbin is, and still the same thing, I am at alost here. Happy Almost at the point of tossing the mean thing out the window. I went through the manual over and over and follow the instructions...is there something that I am not seeing or missing? thanks guys for the future responces.-sug

Mine does that quite a lot, are you using a particularly thin fabric?

The problem with my sewing machine is that it stopped picking up thread from the bobbin half-way through sewing a dress

My bobbin thread gets tangled sometimes too, very frustrating. I think though, Roma you may be right, it may have been with thin fabrics.
How would you stop it doing it on thin fabrics then?

I was sewing denim, and when i was trying differnt tests to see what it can be , i used a thinner fabric, still the same, and i even used paper cause i was getting tired of the big "mess" of thread everywhere lol

It might be tension then, or maybe even your thread isn't attached to that bit that goes up and down.. not the needle, the thing up the top of the machine, directly above the machine.

Sorry, I can't think of anything else.

thanks guys , i finally got an email back from the company, saying it could be the bobbin case itself, they said if its scratched it would cause the top thread to get caught under it and not work correctly so untill payday, now sewing for me...*cry* but good news I made a kewl flap car organizer out of an old pair of jeans! It should post soon. Happy
