10 reasons for skipped stitches

My machine keeps skipping stitches. I have had it werviced three times in the last n6 months, by two different repairmen, and it works for awhile, then starts backnup again. Any suggestions?


Usually, the first thing to try when a machine skips stitches is install a brand new needle. Also, be sure you are using the right type of needle for the fabric and thread you are using, ie ball point needle for knits, sharp needle for wovens, leather needle for thick fabrics/denim/leather... Needles do wear out with use, so changing needles frequently could be helpful. (Needles are the least expensive solution to most sewing problems!)

You can also try removing the upper thread. ALWAYS raise the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

Machine. Skips stitches and the thread breaks in the top tension.


First, install a brand new needle. Confirm that you are using the correct needle for the thread and fabric being stitched, ie the needle eye could be too small for the thread, the fabric is coarse or sticky causing the thread to wear/fray causing breakage, the needle is blunt or bent, a ball point needle is being used on woven fabric or vice versa...

Second, remove the thread from the machine. Always RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--make sure the correct thread pathway is followed (consult the manual).

Verify that the tension is not set too tight. The tension is correct when both upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric without any puckering of the fabric.

Use good quality thread--avoid old or bargain bin variety. And, use the same thread for the upper and bobbin. Some thread brands may work better than others in your machine. You may need to experiment to find ones that work best.

There is also the possibility that there is a nick or burr somewhere that is catching the thread. You can wrap your index finger with old hosiery (or similar fine fabric) and rub around the thread path, in the bobbin/hook area, needle plate, etc. A small burr can be smoothed with a fine emery board. A big burr may require replacement of the part or service by a technician.

Thread breaks and skips stitches


Open the needle plate, remove the bobbin and bobbin case.....refer to your manual.

Clean away lint and threads.

Thread with the presser foot up.

If this continues, take the machine and samples of the mis-stitching in for service. It could be the timing needs to be adjusted by a professional.

Skipping stithes


Try practicing on a test piece before moving on to the quilt. Batik fabric is beautiful! I would check the thread size and needle. I tried quilting with invisible thread and had the same problem. The minute I changed to 50 wt.thread and a new needle the problem disappeared. I've found that 40 or 50 wt. thread works best on my Janome.
