Thank you everyone. Thanks to all the great support responses and a phone call to APQS I was able to figure out the bobbin; it worked perfectly. I'm certain I sounded like a little girl in a candy store when I reached success; even the tech. on the phone was laughing.
My husband and I discussed that the leaders on it are ragged/dirty near the ends; so we are going to use my mother-in-law's huge dinning room table (what I usually use to sandwich and pin my quilts on) to cut off the ends and then test out the machine while I'm in the process of making new ones. Plus it is a rainy day he
