My first thought would be to check the threading on the top, all though it may look right undo it and redo it its real easy to get the tread behind the tension discs, instead of between them. If all that is right check your upper tension, but not until you have rethreaded it.

Remove the needle plate and watch for the hook to come around. You want to see were the hook meets the needle. it should intersect just a bove the eye. I posted a tip on checking your sewing machine timing, check it out.

Sounds like your hook to needle timing is off. When you sew through thick materials, a lot of machines have issues where the needle sticks in the fabric but all the internal parts shift and this causes the hook to needle timing to go out. The begging signs of this is skipping stitches. You will have to have you local independent sewing store do this adjustment for you
Hope that helps :)

Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
