your bobbin(bottom thread) is probably threaded wrong.  take out the bobbin case and make sure that the thread goes through the tension control thing in the bobbin case, and that the bobbin is in the right way (so that the thread unwinds in the right direction).  Check your manual for pictures.

make sure your machine is oiled (my has to be and i'm assuming they all do) and make sure your tension isn't set to high or low. you could be using old thread or your stich setting may be messed up. on my machine you can sew buttons by pressing in this button in so that there isn't anything guiding the fabric through make sure thats not pushed

Smile! It doesn't confuse people, it lets them see how happy and beaaaauuutiful you are!!!!!!!!

Check your manual... Your needle might be too weak, you could be threading it wrong-- You're probably threading it wrong. Also, try not to sew as quickly if you're making the machine move fast.
A lot of machines need to NOT be oiled and you could mess it up by putting oil on it, so be careful about that. ^.^
