Sewing on reverse of fabric

I have been using the sewing machine and all of a sudden the stich I was sewing started to be sewn on the reverse (underneath) of the fabric when I require it to be on the fabric front. Can you help?

There has to be thread on both sides of the cloth in order to form a stitch.

Refer to the maintenance section of your machine and clean the machine as recommended.

Did you change the thread or needle?

Check the manual to be sure the threading is correct and was done with the presser foot up.

Is the needle is correctly installed?

Check the bobbin to be sure the thread is feeding in the correct direction and through the guides on the side of the bobbin case.

Can this machine sew over pins?


You must remove the pins as you sew otherwise you will either break the needle or do worse damage to the machine. Home sewing machines were never meant to sew through metal.

Skips stiches


This is normally a needle related problem, change the needle for the type of fabric to be sewn. If it is a stretchy fabric, get a "stretch" needle.
Good Luck

Stitch problems


You can adjust the pressure foot(not footpedal)which puts the prsure on the foot by the needle. Also try altering the stitch length. If the stitches are skipping on silky fabric or knitted fabrics try using tissue and sewing onto that directly then tearing it off afterwards.
