Make sure your bobbin is in correctly and that the thread is properly wound. I love my Designer 1, but it isn't very good at winding bobbins evenly. It also has to be the correct bobbin type for the machine--I even had trouble using the "compatible" bobbins, so had to go back to the "genuine" Husqvarna Viking bobbins.

Has it worked ok before and is just now acting up? Check for a thread stuck near the bobbin case, buildup of lint under the bobbin case, bent needle. Is your "sewing advisor" set for the right type of fabric? Using the "R" embroidery foot?

If it works ok for regular sewing and/or worked fine last time you embroidered, it is problably just something you are overlooking.

Good luck :-) --Liz
