Make sure your presser foot is tight down. If the needle is going from side to side, it's doing it's job. If the stitches are coming out straight, the material is probably slipping back and forth to center area. The presser will eliminate this.

Try these solutions.
* Re-thread your needle
It may be threaded incorrectly (backwards).
* Reinsert your needle
Make sure it goes all the way into the holder and that it’s positioned correctly – usually with the
flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your machine’s manual to be sure.
*Change your needle
Your needle may be blunt, bent, or otherwise damaged.
*Your fabric may require a different needle. Generally, heavier fabrics require larger needles and
thinner fabrics, smaller needles. You may also need a larger needle if
you’re sewing through many layers of fabric. And make sure to use a ballpoint needle for knit fabrics and a sharp needle for wovens (or a universal needle for either).
And make sure your needle is appropriate for the type of thread you’re using.
* Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot
It may be too light for your fabric.
* Change your thread
If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for
both. And use a good quality, brand name thread.
* Adjust your thread tension
It may be too tight or too loose.
* Re-thread your machine
It may be threaded incorrectly.
* Change your needle plate
Try switching to a needle plate with a smaller hole (a straight stitch needle plate).
Important: If you change your needle plate, check to make sure your needle aligns perfectly with
this smaller hole before starting to sew. A misaligned needle could hit the plate and break, which
could be dangerous. And make sure to change your needle plate back for zigzag and other wide
I hope this helps you.
