I have a CS 6000i which I have really appreciated. But now it is skipping stitches - mostly skipping. I have been sewing the same project and it had been sewing fine. What will fix it?


try increasing/decreasing the needle thread tension for the added material thickness
use scrap material until you get it right

What is the needle size for brothe 911 sewing machine


Be sure to change the needle frequently, ie every time you start a new project. Needles will cause a great deal of frustration yet are the least expensive item to fix.

Can I adjust the timing on my Juki TL-2010Q myself? I need realy detailed directions!


Have you replaced your needle first. Sometimes simply a new needle will do the trick. That Juki being a straight stitch only machine make it simple. When the needle reaches its lowest point and then starts back up about an eight of an inch. The point of the hook should be slightly above the eye of the needle and be directly behind the needle shaft.

What makes stitches skip?


Skipping stitches is usually the needle choice. OR if could be blunt (needles are supposed to be changed every 8 - 10 hours of sewing) There are needles to be only used for sewing stretch fabrics, these are the "blue needles" of ball point needles, then there are the Universal needles for sewing woven fabrics cotton etc. then there are needles only for sewing denim.
You will need to identify which fabric you are sewing and use the appropriate needle.
Then there are the sizes #12 #14 #16 or 75 80 or 90 I'm not sure which numbering system you are using the smaller the number the finer the fabric is the usual way to go..
Also check that the needle is in the correct way. The scarf (the flat side of the needle is to be facing the back of the machine) also check the bobbin as it too can be put in the wrong way and will even try to sew..
Check that your threads are suitable for the fabric If possible try and match the thread in the bobbin with the top thread type.
If all else fails go and have a cuppa and come back to the machine change the needle change the bobbin change the threads and most times it will be ok. cheers Dot

Babylock imagin surger skips stiches


Do you need a heavier needle (most sergers use size 11/75 or 14/90)? Do you need a different needle point style for what you're serging? Is the machine clean and properly lubricated? Does it skip on all fabrics, or just this one particular fabric?

If the answers are no, no, yes, and all fabrics, then you've probably got a looper that's just a smidge out of alignment, or a burr on the thread path someplace.

I have a Hyundai 8 stitch sewing machine and have great difficulty sewing with it. The thread keeps bunching up underneath and misses a lot of stitches. I have followed instructions, both threading up


here is a suggestion for the skipped stitches
Skipped stitches
1. The needle is not inserted correctly
Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)
2. The needle is damaged
replace with new needle
3. The wrong size needle is being used
Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric
4. The foot not attached correctly
Check & attach correctly

and since it stops with a crunch,, I suggest having the machine
checked to see why that happening

Skip stitch


The three most obvious causes (other than that of the machine possibly being slightly out of time) are:

1) Too small of a needle size - increase the size.

2) A needle that has a flaw / defect - change the needle.

3) Needle not inserted correctly, either not pushed all the way up into the needle bar, or not installed facing the correct place. On this machine, the small "scarf" in the needle (an indent just above the eye) shouldface the right side of the machine.

When machine quilting sews fine when moving forward, skips stitches when moving away


Check your needle. Make sure it is not blunt, try a Size 90 Topstitch needle or Embroidery needle. If you are using a thread thicker than regular piecing weight, you need a needle with a larger eye and a larger scrarf - the hollowed out bit at the back of the needle. Also don't sew too fast nor change direction too sharply. If you need to do a sharp turn, let the machine "mark time" once at the turn before moving off in the new direction.
