Try these fixes:

Raise your feed dogs*

    If your machine has this feature.

    Also, before you start to sew a seam, grasp the thread tails from the upper and bobbin threads. Hold
    them back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from
    getting caught in your machine.
*Your feed dogs are the little teeth that stick up beyond your needle plate.
