Increase the pressure foot pressure. Look it up in the operating manual. Also try to feed the material smoothly. Don't pull the material through.

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.

New to me (used) Ambition 1.0 skipping stitches when in free motion with feed dogs down and sewing in a backwards direction (stitches fine when going forward or even sideways).


You have to be more slow and even speed. The main thing is to not pull on the thread. The top and bottom thread have to work together in order to sew. Try to practice in a forward motion and then backwards. Make sure that you have the right pressure foot being used.

Hi, I just need to know how to thread this machine properly or, where can I get a manual please?


Search the internet for:

Make + Model + the word "Manual"

or contact manufacturer support. Most machines are threaded similarly, so even if you can't find a manual for your model, a manual for a model similar to yours will be helpful.

You can also search YouTube videos for threading instructions.

When threading, be sure to always raise the presser foot during the upper threading process. This releases the tension disk and allows the thread to seat properly.

For skipped stitches, try installing a brand new needle.

I just got a handheld sewing machine it has refused to make stitches whilst sewing I have tried and tried no stitches. Pls is there anything am not doing right


With ANY machine you have to have thread on a bobbin coming from the underside of the cloth. Did you check the bobbin to make sure there's thread on it?

I am knitting an afghan with Taku mi 13 needles.


are you working a pattern or is it a straight stitch like garter or stockinette?

I would make a stitch gauge sample with the smaller needles to see how many stitches per inch.
Figure out how many stitches you will need to match the width of the current piece.
Take that number and subtract the number of stitches you currently have with the size 13 needles. (new stitch count - original stitch count = difference)
Divide the original number of stitches by the difference.
that is how many stitches I would do between increases

Let me use an example:
Say your original work had 75 stitches
From the gauge sample you know you need 100 stitches to make the same width
100-75=25
Now divide 75 by 25=3
Ffter every third stitch, I would put in an increase
that way the increases should work evenly across your piece.

This will be more challenging if you are working a pattern but the goal is to work the increases in as evenly as possible with as little impact as possible on the pattern being knitted. That might mean doing 2 increases every 6 stitches because it fits the pattern better.

good luck.

I have the Mega Quilter and Quilters Cruise Control. My stitches are very inconsistent.


I agree to have the regulator check, & even having the whole machine checked wouldn't hurt.

I am sewing a knit fabric on my Lily 540 and it is skipping stitches like crazy. I have tried adjusting the tension and the stitch length with no success. seem to always have a hard time with getting even...


It sounds like you may be using the wrong needle. For knit fabric you need a ball point needle in order for it to sew correctly. A regular sharp type needle can cause the stitches to skip. Also make sure you have the right size for the type of fabric. Lighter weight fabric needs smaller size needle and thicker types need bigger sized needles.

Also make sure you have the right presser foot and the right pressure on the presser foot to get nice even stitches. A roller foot helps when sewing knit fabrics.

How do i stop juki ddl from top skipping stitches?


Hi. Skipped stitches are usually caused by a mismatch in your thread and needle. Wrong thread type, wrong needle size, or even old thread can cause skipped stitches. If all else fails, change the needle. If that doesn't work, clean the machine. Sometimes just getting rid of all the lint and giving her a good oiling does a world of good.

Let me know if this works.

Topand bottom stitches are not even


Could be a tension issue.

Try this to see if it helps:
Remove top thread.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Start the top tension set at the midway point and then adjust.
Check that the bobbin is threaded and installed correctly.

Stitch problems


You can adjust the pressure foot(not footpedal)which puts the prsure on the foot by the needle. Also try altering the stitch length. If the stitches are skipping on silky fabric or knitted fabrics try using tissue and sewing onto that directly then tearing it off afterwards.
