Unthread that needle and rethread making certain it is following the thread path exactly AND that the thread has actually gone between the tension discs. Check for any bits of thread / fluff lodged in between the tension disc. Are all the threads good quality and the same brand / type?
Good luck

Sound like the bobbin thread is not 'locking; with the top thread. Check thread tension settings. Is it OK with other embroidery?
Also check the corre`t needle is fitted and that it is a fresh one!
