I love my Brother PE-150. I have had it for several years.
I was almost finish with a lace embroidery pattern and the bobbin gave out of thread. I did what I normally do, but the machine has not work correctly since. THE MACHINE WILL NOT PICK UP THE BOBBIN THREAD. I've tried everything according to the book!!
Can anyone make a suggestion as to what the problem might be? The nearest authorized service center is 150 miles.

Peg, my serger does that if the needle isn't in all the way. Did you check to make sure it's securely in place? Sometimes they come loose from the machine's vibration. The only other things I can think of are to make sure there's no little thread trapped in the bobbin area, make sure it's threaded correctly and that the presser foot is down.
