When I turn the knob on the side of the sewing machine its really tight. I took the bobbin thing out and put a few drops of oil in it and it didn't work. Can anyone give me any ideas of how to fix this myself? Nothing is stuck. I cried of course that didn't help and I really need this machine. My husband hours have cut back and I was trying to make some christmas gifts and Im stuck..Help!! Don't have a lot of $$ so I was trying be a little creative now machine s down. :( There is no way for me to take it to the shop or even get another one right now. Hopefully someone can help. Thanks everyone.
