Is the needle bent, burred or blunt, did it strike a pin or the sewing machine foot during the jam up?

Hand wind the machine through the stitch formation and listen for any squeaking or popping sound as the needle enters the fabric. Or just change the needle anyway and see if it helps. A needle is good for 4-6 hours of sewing only so they do need changing for each new project.

If the stitching is looking uneven and tension is bad check your thread path and make sure the top thread is between the tension discs correctly and under tension, the tension dial is set to the mid range 5 or so and that the bobbin thread is correctly held by the tension spring and is in the right way and rotating in the correct direction.

If looping on the underneath, then your top tension is off, and visa versa.

SOURCE: Does the simplicity classic model S02 do a hem stitch? Does it come with the hemming foot? Can you please show a hemming foot for it so I can compare it to the feet my machine has? Thanks

No the Simplicity Classic Model S02 doesn't come with a hemming foot. It is too simple a sewing machine. It does have the capability of doing edging and some basic stitches that can be used for hemming, but there is no specialty setting. See the linked pdf quick start guide for more information. http://www.mastersewusa.com/video/S02LetsGetStarted.pdf

Machine skips stitches on bulky items


Skipped stitches

1. The needle is not inserted correctly

Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)

2. The needle is damaged

replace with new needle

3. The wrong size needle is being used

Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric

4. The foot not attached correctly

Check & attach correctly
