SOURCE: How do you connect Qbot to a Pfaff 18/8

Don't put the blame on the equipment and instruction manuals. Put the blame on the dealer that sold you the equipment. That is who should be ultimately responsible to you to make sure that everything is working together properly.

Most reputable dealers will have some type of support for you if you are having a problem using products that they sold you.

Now, in your dealer's defense, if you refused to include set up and support in your purchase in order to negotiate a lower price, or, you purchased from multiple dealers or (heaven forbid) online, you are now on your own unless you can get a knowledgeable person to adopt you.

Many dealers are willing to forgive your transgressions of getting the best price if you will purchase a set up package even if you purchased elsewhere. Remember, we make a living selling machines and keeping our clients happy. If a shopper purchases anywhere the product is cheaper and then we spend our time offering free service, we go broke and our loyal clients are left out.

Remember two things:
1. Build a relationship with a reputable dealer and they will take care of you.

2. Shop for that reputable dealer first, shop for a make and model second. If you don't have a reputable dealer, the brand name means nothing.

There are a couple things you can do that may help. 1. Float some lightweight paper under the fabric. Sew through the material and the paper. Then tear away the paper.

Secondly make sure you are using a long enough stitch.

If none of these things work.... take it in and have an example of the skipping. Have the machine's timing checked.

Needles are breaking and the machine skips stiches


Hi there,

Well there are many reason for that problem you may check out one by one -
1. TENSION - check out the upper tension.
2. BOBBIN.
3. NEEDLE -many times a seamstress will get in a hurry and not give the needle a second thought when putting a new one in the machine. If your machine will not pick up the bottom thread or skips stitches badly, in most cases it's because the needle is in wrong.
4. NEEDLE PLATE.
Post comments for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Tread breakage snd stich skipping


(A)Put in a new needle and rethread from the beginning. Make sure the take-up hook is threaded. Also, (B) clean lint out - sewing machines have very small margin for error when lint pushes everything out of alignment. Mostly, it sounds like your thread is stuck somewhere, which can even be at the spool, so (A).
