The bobbin thread will always pull freely. To release the top thread, you have to raise the foot far enough to release the tension disks on your top tension either by raising it with the knee lift as far as it will go, or using the lever on the back of the machine to hold the foot up.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
