The difficulty seems to be the sewing. I thought I got the bobbin in correctly, and the self threading needle seems easy enough. Apparently this machine is not the easiest, I have since noticed a few Singer models labeled, "simply the easiest" they also say, "SureFit Bobbin - only one way to insert the bobbin. The right way! • NoError Threading - You can't get it wrong." I see an exchange in my future.
