Check to see if your needle is bent-roll on flat surface to see if it roll good
if the needle make a popping sound when going thru fabric it is blunt
the needle is incorrectly inserted in needle clamp holder
needle & thread not compatable with project
check for warped bobbin
rethread machine
check bobbin area for lint or loose threads
check to make sure thread is not caught on any thing-such as spool pin-notch in spool of thread

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 sometimes occur if the machine is incorrectly threaded. Remove the thread and re-thread from the beginning (first RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat in the tension disk).
Confirm that the thread follows the correct pathway (consult manual).
Try installing a brand-new needle.
Make sure the needle, thread, and fabric are compatible.

I think the timing is out on my janome 2039 sewing machine


It is very possible that the timing is off, which often occurs with broken needles. A common symptom is that the needle will not pick up the bobbin thread. Missed stitches aren't necessarily timing related--be sure to install brand needles often and use the correct needle for the fabric & thread you are using. Using the wrong needle will often cause skipped stitches.
