2. also - try loosening the top tension a little bit - i.e. not exactly on the red line but half a number or a whole number (?line) lower...
3. - and this should probably be nr. 1.
when starting to sew - make sure you have a goodish lenght of thread top and bottom - on my mom's old machine if we don't hold on to the threads when doing the first couple of stitches either the top thread pulls out (when you start sewing the top tension comes on and pulls the thread back up...), or, alternatively, the two manage to tangle and form a birds nest an albatross could lay it's eggs in.
4. i know you're scared of your new machine - but does it possibly need cleaning? i.e. is the area under the "teeth" full of fuzz and lint?
open the front of the bobbin-area - you might have to clean it all out

I *AM* having fun playing with this and can tell I'll love it once I get the thread to stay where it belongs! It makes my project list seem manageable now that there's this speed behind it that I could never manage by hand! wow. I might have to think up more ideas, and increase my fabric budget just to keep up....LOL!!!!

When I do that, and then put fabric under the foot to sew, then the thread is sort of on top...it comes from under the fabric, but then at the foot since it's pulled up over the foot that makes it also up over the fabric at the back end. Not sure how to explain it....but, is that right? The bobbin thread through the slit in the presser foot and thus over the top rear/side of the foot and off to the back of the machine?
