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.

When I am sewing it will sew about 3 stiches and then jam.. It does it if I change weight of material or it will s kip stiches.

Skipped stitches is usually indication that needle is blunt or burred.
Or if you are using a sharp needle on knit fabrics it may also skip a little.

Not sure what you mean by "change weight of material" - do you mean you are sewing applique and going from one fabric weight onto another? or different sewing projects?

It is a good idea to change your needle for each new project (4-6 hours sewing time max) and choose the right type of needle and size for your project.

However, the jamming part sounds more like thread tension issues, especially if the jamming is happening underneath from the bobbin. If stitching is loose underneath, then top tension is the problem and visa versa.

Recheck your threading path, top and bottom tensions and that you have good quality thread. Change the needle, rewind a fresh bobbin, thread up and try again.

There is really good info on or I refer to my Singer Sewing Machine textbook at lot too. Good luck.

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).
