Question about Sewing Machines
Hi, my machine has recently started skipping stitches on the chain stitch when i use it to overlock and chainstitch together, i have replaced the needles and am using the recommended bernina overlocker needles, im using size 80/12 on slightly stretchy medium fabric i dont know a lot about what needles to use but ive used these before on this fabric and its been fine.i have checked all the tensions and rethreaded the machine several times but this keeps happening and its driving me mad!
Make sure the chain stitch thread is threaded exactly as it should be, make doubly sure the thread comes off the bobbin vertically and runs through all eyes smoothly. Any faults in the threading causes extra tension at the needle despite what the tension is set on.
If this is not the cause then the needle depth and the looper timing needs checking.
