I thought maybe that was the case. The bend goes forward and the scooped out part goes in the back - that is my understanding and that is the way I put it in. Maybe the needles are different in some way. Perhaps I will try turning it around.  Would it also not sew if it wasn't perfectly straight?  Thanks

The groove running down the needle goes in front and the scarf goes in the back. You may not have it pushed up all the way up. If you put it in backwards, you will hear a horrible clatter.

Did you break the needle because you hit a ruler?  If so, you might have inadvertently adjusted the needle bar height. Take the bobbin case out, manually move the needle to it's lowest position and check if you can see just the eye of the needle and a tiny bit of silver above the eye, in the bobbin area. If your needle is not the correct height you will not get stitches.  I think there is a video on the APQS site on how to adjust the needle height.  It's also covered in the manual.  Good luck.
