Replace the needle it might be bend and check if it is the right needle for the work you are doing. You get for example stretch needles, denim needles, needle for thick/thin yarn, thick material ect. Using the wrong needle for the wrong material can cause skipped stiches especially if it did not do it before. Clean and oil the bobbin holder and make sure the bobbin is threaded correctly. Can also adjust top yarn tension as a last option.

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:

Slant o matic 401g skipping stitches what is wrong


Make sure you are using a brand new needle. A damaged needle will frequently cause skipped stitches. (Changing the needle is the least expensive repair for machine problems!!!!)

There is a lot of information available on the internet.

My pfaff hobbymatic 875 is skipping thread on the bobbin side


Be sure to use a brand new needle. If the needle is bent or damaged, it will frequently skip stitches. Also, if you are using the incorrect needle for the fabric & thread you are using, it will skip stitches, ie a ball point needle on woven fabric.
