Hello Keith, From the little information you stated, I can only take a stab at what might be wrong with your machine. I suggest you make sure the take up spring is working freely and properly.

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.

Skipped stitches

Skipped stitches could result from several different origins. First, easiest, and least expensive thing, try a brand new needle. However, if it is failing to pick up the bobbin thread all together, then it is probably out of time (search for sewing machine timing or take it for service).

Here are other suggestions for intermittent skipping:

My Janome Memory Craft 5700 using the R buttonhole foot will only do a striaght line will not turn at top for bartack any suggestios?

Go to page 25 in your 5700 manual and read from the beginning about how to set the buttonhole foot up. Make sure you have followed all steps. There is a lever on the button hole foot that you pull down. If you have done everything correctly, then you may need to call a service tech at a sewing store and have it serviced. You can get a copy of the manual from Janome's website.
Hope you find the answer.

Needle does not reach bobbin to to pull bobbin thread on surface

Sewing machine needles are specific to each model. If the needles are not for your model they could be too short or too thick so that they don't sit in the shank correctly. Check your user manual or Mr Google could help.

does it sew buttonholes both ways?

My Janome 6500 always buttonholes away from me, so when it starts, it sews the near bartack, then stitches backwards down the right hand side of the buttonhole. It then comes back with little straight stiches on other side and sews the zigzag backwards on the left side, then the far bar tack. I would have thought your Janome would do the same stitch sequence.

When a machine does an "automatic buttonhole the feed does not move for a few stitches and maay jam if there are too many stitches made in this position. Is it an automatic buttonhole or can you choose how many stitches for your bartack? You ask about 0.5 well that is halfway between 0 and 1 on the stitchlength and this is indeed the recommended setting for buttonholes. If you are doing a manual buttonhole set your machine to this for the sides and zero for the bartacks but you only need about 6-10 stitches on the bartack. Fininsh it off securely by setting to straight stitch and stitch length zero for about 4 stitches to lock the thread in.
