Skipped stitches and getting worse

My stitches started skipping about a year ago. I took it into the dealer I purchased it from and they serviced it and said it was fine. It has continued to skip and now skips all the time. Not only on stitch 12 like before but also my straight sticth, my zig zag, etc. I am extrememl;y frusterated by this and am in the process of sewing over 50 costumes right now and its not working correctly.

    Where would I find directions on fixing the timing myself. All shops around here are closed till Wed or Thursday and I have taken it a few times now for the same thing to the dealer I opurchased it from....over a 2 hour drive. They make me leave it a week and then still don't fix it. I am more than a little irritated since I have purchased 3 different machines from them over the past few years.

It might be that you have the wrong needle/ thread combination for the fabric that you are using. sharps for wovens, ball point for knits. the heavier the fabric and the thicker the thread the larger needle you need to use.

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:

Skipping stitches?


skipped stitches is usually an indication of timing of hook and needle being off. The needle is not always picking up the bobbin thread. Suggest that it be serviced by an authorized Husqvarna Viking Dealer. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Skipping stitches


Skipped stitches
1. A bent or dull needle
2. The wrong needle for your fabric
knit fabrics require a jersey or ballpoint tip. Most wovens do well with a universal tip, and specialty fibers, like leather or metallic, usually require specific needles.
3. Incorrect machine threading
4. Unbalanced needle thread tension
Start by making relatively small changes and run a test stitch to evaluate the impact. If you need to adjust the tension dial using woven cotton fabric with good quality all-purpose thread and a new needle
5.check the needle is inserted correctly. The needle needs to be pushed as far up the needle shaft as possible. It's easy to insert the needle half way, clamp it down and think it is inserted correctly.
the flat part of the needle should be positioned towards the back. If the needle is not inserted correctly, it will not be able to pull up the bobbin thread and will cause skipped stitches.
6. If the suggestions don't help then it is time for a tune-up.

Open-toe darning foot skips all stitches....help!


Hmm, have you installed a brand new needle? Make sure the needle is compatible with the thread and fabric. Sometimes a top stitch or microtex needle will work better for free motion quilting or darning.

Pfaff 1222E machine not working right


Skipped stitches means a bent or dull needle or improper needle for the fabric being sewn. Try a new needle of the correct type for the material being sewn. If this doesnt correct it, then it will be a timing or needle to hook problem and should go to a qualifed dealer for repair.

Skipped stitches


You will need to take your machine to a dealer and have it adjusted. Machines should be cleaned and serviced at least once a year. Needles should be replaced when dull. Skipping stitches can also be from using the wrong kind of needle. When quilting on cotton, use sharp needles, when sewing on knits use a ball needle. You can use a universal needle but they aren't perfect and will cause skipping on some fabrics.
