SOURCE: Skipped stitches & looping on the bottom of Quilt

Try a different needle. Use a quilting or topstitch or even a metallic needle - one that has a larger scarf than normal. The scarf is the groove at the back of the needle where the thread goes while the stitch is being formed. Quilting threads often need more "room" there. I have been told that the Inspira quilting needles are good because they have a thread groove on the front and the back of the needle. Not tried them personally but might be worthwhile for you to consider.

For the looping, you could fiddle with your tensions a little either loosening the bobbin tension or tightening the top, or both. Only ever do this in very small increments. But the good news is that even the "professional" quilters do not have perfect quilt backs - just have a look at them at quilt shows!

SOURCE: My ls2125i won't stitch

Start slowly, make sure your thread trails are long enough, I had this problem a LOT when I first started using this machine. (mainly because it was my first machine!)

Fabric bulge- Don't try to push the fabric through the machine, let the feed dogs do it. Your job is to guide the fabric.

Thread jumps- Also, like Outdoorsman said, the tension is probably off. On this machine, the tension knob is easy to find. It's the small one with the numbers on it. "0 1 2 3 4-5-6 7 8 9" 4-5-6 are your optimal sewing tensions. I usually sew on 4 or 5, depending on my fabric and type of stitch.

No stitches- Your lower thread may not be being grabbed properly/bobbin case may be jumping out of position. Open the lower case and make sure your bobbin case is secure, and the thread is grabbed properly.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: My Brother LX 3125 does not sew zig zag stitches

Mine did the same thing. The needle is probably to high. Do not insert the needle all the way to the top. Lower it a bit and it should zig zag!

SOURCE: My machine sews straight when set to zig zag and

If your using a stretch fabric, youll need to sew in a stiffner tape. if the fabric "flags" i.e moves up and down with the needle it spoils the loop needed to form a stitch. If your having problems with a stiffer fabric it could be just a bad or too thin a needle. Check threading, needle condition and setting.

My machine is skipping stiches it seems its not picking up from the bobbin


Install a brand new needle and confirm it is inserted with the flat side facing the proper direction.. A bent, damaged needle will sometimes cause skipped stitches or even needle strikes inside the machine. A new needle is the least expensive cure for a lot of sewing machine problems. The needle should be changed about every 8 hours of sewing or at least when starting a new project.

Remove the top thread. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

Sometimes, skipped stitches will occur if the needle, thread, and fabric are incompatible. Be sure to use the correct needle for your project. Use a good quality thread--AVOID old or bargain bin thread!

If the machine continues to skip stitches, then it may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

My pfaff hobbymatic 875 is skipping thread on the bobbin side


Be sure to use a brand new needle. If the needle is bent or damaged, it will frequently skip stitches. Also, if you are using the incorrect needle for the fabric & thread you are using, it will skip stitches, ie a ball point needle on woven fabric.

Skipping stitches


Skipped stitches
1. A bent or dull needle
2. The wrong needle for your fabric
knit fabrics require a jersey or ballpoint tip. Most wovens do well with a universal tip, and specialty fibers, like leather or metallic, usually require specific needles.
3. Incorrect machine threading
4. Unbalanced needle thread tension
Start by making relatively small changes and run a test stitch to evaluate the impact. If you need to adjust the tension dial using woven cotton fabric with good quality all-purpose thread and a new needle
5.check the needle is inserted correctly. The needle needs to be pushed as far up the needle shaft as possible. It's easy to insert the needle half way, clamp it down and think it is inserted correctly.
the flat part of the needle should be positioned towards the back. If the needle is not inserted correctly, it will not be able to pull up the bobbin thread and will cause skipped stitches.
6. If the suggestions don't help then it is time for a tune-up.

Skipping stitches


Change the needle; it could be blunt, burred, or a ballpoint on a woven fabric would all cause skipped stitches. If you hand wind the machine through a stitch and can hear popping, or squeaking, its blunt, change it.

A sewing machine needle needs to be replaced after 4-6 hours of sewing, so a new one for each project is a good rule of thumb.

This means that you are putting in the right sized needle for the project too, not just using what was in there from last project.

Invest in a packet of needles in every size, ball point and sharps, microtex, leather, and denim.

there is good information on needles on http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/ig/Sewing-Machine-Needles/Needle-Sizes.--94.htm too.
