    Wow, you really think it's that simple? I followed the manual's step by step for threading VERY closely, so I kind of doubt it...

    Side note: That video is from about 20 minutes away from me. Maybe if her advice doesn't work I'll take my machine to her and complain.

    Do _not_ adjust the bobbin tension unless you know exactly what you are doing and why you are doing it. For more information on bobbin tension read my post in my signature. In the vast majority of cases, the problem can be addressed with top tension adjustments.
    Here's another respected guide to learning and knowing what you are doing. There's more here than appears in the top-rated youtube video.

    A friends new machine would not sew worth anything. It turned out that the timing was out and runs good after it was adjusted.
