Hi everyone,

I have decided to start sewing and purchased a second hand machine from an online auction site, the machine I purchased was a Brother PX 110. When I received the machine there were no instructions with it, so I called the helpline and they sent me the manual by email. I have read the instructions and was hopeful that I would remember enough from my school years to start sewing. However, I can't get the machine to feed the fabric, also the underthread keeps knotting up. I really don't know what to do. Has anyone used a machine like this? Any suggestions are greatly received, I apologise in advance for my lack of knowledge.

Thank you for reading

Claire

I have cleaned and oiled the machine as described in the manual and checked that I am threading the bobbin correctly by following an online tutorial. The best way I can describe it is - it's almost like it is stitching but the material is not moving so I just get all the stitches on top of each other. Any suggestions?

It has got so frustrating that I have to break out the chocolate biscuits.

I have solved the problem, it was the feed dogs, I had accidentally knocked the drop feed lever and put them in the down position. I am so happy.  Grin
