Question about Janome L-344 Mechanical Sewing Machine
After the needle breaking i replaced it but not long after it starts skipping stitches.. im mid way through a pair of curtains...
Make sure that you have a new needle and not a used one.
If you are sewing lightweight curtains, use a size 80/12 needle. If heavier fabric, a size 90/14.
Make sure that the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back.
Inspect the needle plate where the needle goes through and check for burrs. If there are burrs, use a very fine sandpaper folded flat to fit through the hole to remove them.
Take out the hook and inspect it for burrs as well. Take care not to dull the tip of the hook.
Set the upper tension knob/dial to 5.
Use Mettler or Gutermann thread and Schmetz needles. This can make a huge difference.
