@cr6zy: When I first read the title of this thread I thought you meant like your singer in the band you had booked or something…

Glad to hear it was only a sewing machine! lol

Try dismantling the bobbin case. Then take a small brush and brush as much of the gunk away as you can. You may need a seam ripper and/or tweezers to grab some threads. Then take your vacuum and gently vacuum out the area. Also, check the part where you wind the thread. Sometimes threads will get stuck in there. You can usually use a seam ripper to grab the threads to pull them out.

Oh my goodness, I read the title and thought the singer for your band died, geez! Good thing it was only a sewing machine, but that does still suck!

@cr6zy:

sometimes, if you use a small screwdriver to adjust the tension on the bobbin case, it can make a big difference.

also, relax. sewing machines have an uncanny way of knowing when you least need them to break down…
