make sure your needle is facing the right way, some needles if you look at the front and back you will see a groove side and a flat side sometimes it is hard to tell the difference depending on needle style.. hold it up to light and look at it from the side the difference will be slight but you will see a difference groove should face the back or if your presser foot is out of wack (lol so technical terminology) it could cause needle breaks and noise you can detect damage to the presser foot if this is happening.... only other thing i can suggest is to make sure bobbin is securely snapped into the housing if not it can cause problems with the needle picking up the bobbin

SOURCE: I get skipped stitches when
Did you use a larger sized needle for the think fabric? It sounds like the needle isn't penitrating deep enough. You will need a larger needle size for the thick fabric and you might try slightly adjusting the tension tho a larger needle may be all you need. Make sure it is a sharp not a ballpt needle too (assuming you're not using polyester knits which isn't something one usually makes oven mitts with :) )

Testimonial: "Very pleased!!!!!!"
SOURCE: Skip stitches
some machine are not made to sew thick or heavy fabric
Sewing machine skips stitches
needle inserted incorrectly--flat side of the needle faces the shaft
round needle--groove of needle faces away from the shaft
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the needle. Place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back of the machine.
If round needle--the groove in the needle faces away from the shaft
Push needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go.
possible bent needle--lay needle on flat surface & roll needle over, if the needle does not roll good -replace
blunt needle point--needle makes a popping sound when needle penetrates the fabric--replace needle
needle not all the way up in needle holder--loosen needle clamp screw & push the needle up until it stops then tighten screw
incorrect threading--one step missed in sequence of threading can cause machine to skip stitches
wrong needle in machine--check instruction manual--some machines can use a generic needle with no problem--some can't--
size of needle & thread not compatible--
Using the wrong type needle can cause problems,,
A needle to fine for heavy fabric can bend or break when it hit's the fabric
And a too large needle can make puncture holes in the fabric and pull unevenly while stitching

SOURCE: Uneven feed
machines can have single or double feeders. what type does yours have? feeding problems can usually be fixed by a good cleaning+ oiling of the feeder mechanism which regularly gets clogged with lint+threads/scrap threads. brush it out thoroughly with a stiff-bristled brush like an acid brush. apply 1 drop of oil to each feeder seen on the foot-plate. wipe excess oil off with a clean dry rag being sure not to get any debris from the rag caught in the feeder(s). other problem might be your bobbin tension. this is usually adjusted on the bobbin race with a very small screwdriver.

Your machine most likely has a presser foot pressure control. Check your owner's manual. Perhaps the pressure on your machine is set for light-weight fabric and, as a result, is pressing too firmly on your quilt sandwich. Decrease the pressure and see if the walking foot performs better. You should not have to pull the fabric through your machine.
