SOURCE: when machine quilting sews fine when moving forward, skips stitches when moving away

Check your needle. Make sure it is not blunt, try a Size 90 Topstitch needle or Embroidery needle. If you are using a thread thicker than regular piecing weight, you need a needle with a larger eye and a larger scrarf - the hollowed out bit at the back of the needle. Also don't sew too fast nor change direction too sharply. If you need to do a sharp turn, let the machine "mark time" once at the turn before moving off in the new direction.

SOURCE: skip stitch

The three most obvious causes (other than that of the machine possibly being slightly out of time) are:

1) Too small of a needle size - increase the size.

2) A needle that has a flaw / defect - change the needle.

3) Needle not inserted correctly, either not pushed all the way up into the needle bar, or not installed facing the correct place. On this machine, the small "scarf" in the needle (an indent just above the eye) shouldface the right side of the machine.

SOURCE: I have a Necchi free arm mechanical sewing machine

I could not think of another way then free-motion sewing.
Drop the feed dogs, and put a spring loaded needle on.

SOURCE: why is my machine skipping stitches

this is caused by uneven winding of the bobbin, sometimes the spool of thread winds unevenly when it travels up and down the spool. the best solution i have found is to use small spools of thread when winding the bobbins

Can I adjust the timing on my Juki TL-2010Q myself? I need realy detailed directions!


Have you replaced your needle first. Sometimes simply a new needle will do the trick. That Juki being a straight stitch only machine make it simple. When the needle reaches its lowest point and then starts back up about an eight of an inch. The point of the hook should be slightly above the eye of the needle and be directly behind the needle shaft.

How do I stop my Juki DDL-8700 machine from skipping stitches?


set up on quilting table? wheres the oil pan?? if your machine sews fine straight and skips on curves i think you are lifting the presser ft as you make the turn. theres nothing wrong with the machine. you could always change the needle which is always the first thing when you encounter a sewing problem.

My Juki MO-655 serger will sew a few inches then the needle thread becomes disengaged in the stitch process. The machine will sew a few inches more then stops making stitches. I have cleaned the thre


Make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Make sure you are using serger thread that isn't old. Make sure you are undoing all the threads when it breaks and thread it from the beginning.

Make sure you have the right needles in their respective places. My Juki MO has two different size needles.

Skipping stitches on coverstitch machine


To avoid skipped stitches on a coverstitch machine you need to use ELs (extra long) or SUK (stretch) needles and good quality thread. Poor quality thread is too fluffy and varies in thickness which can cause stitch problems. Try Maxilock thread from a cone or use maxilock on looper and regular sewing machine thread through needles and see if this improves the stitches. Also loosen off the lower looper tension to zero and see if this helps. If you are hemming around a garment and sewing across an overlocked seam then you need to minimise bulk too. lightly press the seams into the diretion you want them to sit when garment is finished, press the hem up, then force the seam allowance in the hem turnup area to the opposite direction. This spreads the seam bulk in both directions.
There is a knack to coverstitch machines but a good cover finish is quicker than twin needle on SM.

Coverstitching on White Speedylock serger


Your machine cannot do a cover stitch. Check the Brother website, they make a cover stitch only machine, it works much better than any of the serger/cover stitch combination machines, and it is a lot less money.
