    that sounds like there's still a problem with the bottom bobbin. When the needle goes into the fabric, it the thread from it should loop round the thread from the bottom bobbin and it sounds like that's not happening.
    and the needle broke. I give up.
    This most often happens if you pull the fabric too hard with the needle still in it - this pulls the needle across to the side and it hits the side of the metal plate on the base of the machine, instead of going through the hole in it.

    I wish I could see your machine 'in the flesh' - I might be more helpful if I could actually see what it was doing and look at it's set up.

    I know, it's very hard to describe what's going on. What I'll do is get Mr Mousey to look at your excellent photo-tutorial and make sure I have done things according to that, and then if it still won't work I'll get Arlia to poke it a bit when she comes round on Monday.

    yeah, it probably just needs someone who's familiar with sewing machines to look at it and go "oh, what you need to do is...."

    Just in case you still need it, I've founded a French version of the manual you're looking for:
