    Is it Spun Polyester or Embroidery Thread? You can only use certain types for those machines.

    Besides all of the above, if you haven't used it in quite awhile, it might need to be oiled.

    I have this problem too. My Simplicity embroidery machine gets the bobbin thread all balled up. I think it is something to do with threading but I can't get it to cooperate. I may have to break down and take it to the shop but that will cost scads... Drat!!!! Good luck with yours.
