Why can’t I pull the bobbin thread up?

First, make sure the bobbin-winding spindle (located on top of your machine) has been pushed back to the left for sewing. If it is not in the correct position, the needle will not go down and pick-up your bobbin thread. … Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension.
