Spool of thread holder jumps then needle unthreads
What is going on? I have a Janome 8060. It’s threaded properly, has new needle, bobbin incorrectly. I’ve changed nothing on the machine and have been using it about 5 yrs. when I started sewing today the arm that the thread slides onto jumped after about 6 stitches and then the thread came out of the needle. Why is this happening?

    Do you have the presser foot in the raised position when you are threading your machine. The tension disks need to be open for the thread to go into the tension disks correctly and if the presser foot is down that can't happen easily and problems generally occur. If that isn't the issue then you should take the machine in for a service. If you haven't taken it in to your dealer in the 5 years you've used the machine, its time.
