So, I bought a Singer 2250. Got the thread all loaded in correctly or so I thought. Set it for a straight stitch and what happens? I get all jammed up and get a big ol' birds nest down where the bobbin feeds up from.

Is this a classic noob error? What did I do wrong? What can I do to correct this?

When it says to bring the thread back under the foot, should it be hard to get it under there?

Thanks in advance!
