I just posted how I love my Brother sewing machine, but today I went to sew, and IT WILL NOT SEW!!!

I am so steamed right now, I am making stuff for an MDC mama, and I HAVE TO GET THIS DONE!!! GRRR!!!! I just want to throw something, and scream and act like a 2 year because Im so frustrated.

Its not sewing! Ive rethreaded it, and redid the bobbin, tried different stitches, and it doesnt sew. It makes a clunky click noise when its "sewing" but nothing actually gets sewed to the garment.

PLEASE! Tell me I can fix this, because I do not have the money to fix this.

The last time my machine did this, I found a nasty snarl of thread under the bobbin holder thingy (real technical, eh?). Once I cleaned it out and re-oiled the machine, all was good again. Also, make sure you've threaded your machine correctly (including through the thread take-up leaver -- if you miss this, the screwed up tension can cause a horrible clunking).

Hope this helps!

I fixed it, it was both of those. Man oh living I was freaking out, one of those Im so mad I could cry scenarios. THanks so much. Im thinking the little snarl caused it to yank out of the loopy thing (on the side) Im all technical too eh? Because I had just rethread it, and put it through there, so it must of snarled out? I dont know the thread kept disappearing.

So glad its working again! My poor dh, standing in the way of an angry woman trying to sew.

Glad to know it's working again and you can get back to your regularly scheduled sewing!
