I have a Janome New Home sewing machine that my mother got for me at a second hand store. When I wind the bobbin the needle still moves up and down. No matter how much I turn the wheel the needle still moves. Am I doing something wrong?

On all the Janomes I've owned, you pull the wheel out (away from the machine) to wind the bobbin.

I had a Singer that did that and I think the solution was to put the needle and presser foot down before I wound the bobbin or maybe it was to make sure they were both all the way up, it was one of those, lol.

There is usually a clutch that you have to disengage before you wind the bobbin. My old Kenmore-made-by-New_Home has a knob in the center of the wheel that moves the needle up and down. If I pull it out to a stop, the needle is disengaged from the motor and doesn't move. Of course, I do have to remember to push it back in when I'm done winding the bobbin or I can't sew! ;)
