I rethought my previous answer and realized that if the hand wheel moves the needle, that the machine is not in bobbin winding mode. Does the hand wheel turn easily and...

Welcome, KJ. I'm guessing that your machine might be what is considered a "left homing" machine. Most of the machines that I've seen that the needle position can be changed have a lever on the...
