    problem with my sewing machine: bobbin thread not picking up

    if anyone can help me, i'd be forever grateful!

    I have a Singer 132 and the bobbin thread is no longer joining with the top thread. The shuttle turns as I bring the needle down to "pick up" the bobbin thread, but it does not actually pick up the thread. Any suggestions?

    I know that with the bobbin in my machine, if the thread is pinched in the split in the side, it's too difficult to catch with the top thread.

    Is your thread running in the right direction? If I put my bobbin in backwards, it won't work properly. also, maybe check it for lint?
