Did she give you the manual?  If not, be sure you find one,
you'll need it for maintenance.

If you have the manual, re-thread both the bobbin and the
needle path completely from scratch. Be sure the bobbin is
in right-way-round. Once threaded, hold onto the needle
thread-tail behind the presser foot while you run the
flywheel forward by hand and see if the bobbin thread comes
up.

HTH,

Have you got the needle in backwards, by chance?  Flat back of the needle goes
to the back of the machine in most cases.

Could the needle be damaged?  Try a new one.

Is the upper tension set to a normal-ish value around 4, or is it much too high,
like 9?

Bobbin threaded correctly?

Are you turning the handwheel in the direction that would cause fabric to
advance from the front to the back of the machine?

Most common cause is incorrect insertion of the needle.

Check the manual.
