Every few inches it skips a stitch---what to do about it? Model 6030 from 1973. Serviced once since then, 10 yrs ago. Runs well otherwise. I sew mostly thin fabrics like nylon tricot for lingerie

For sewing in tricot you should use a Schmetz sewing needle. the perfect one for tricot is a 705HS stretch needle size #11. This should take care of the problem. Mahe sure the package says "stretch", a ball point needle is not the same.

My Juki MO-655 serger will sew a few inches then the needle thread becomes disengaged in the stitch process. The machine will sew a few inches more then stops making stitches. I have cleaned the thre


Make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Make sure you are using serger thread that isn't old. Make sure you are undoing all the threads when it breaks and thread it from the beginning.

Make sure you have the right needles in their respective places. My Juki MO has two different size needles.

Skipped stitches


You will need to take your machine to a dealer and have it adjusted. Machines should be cleaned and serviced at least once a year. Needles should be replaced when dull. Skipping stitches can also be from using the wrong kind of needle. When quilting on cotton, use sharp needles, when sewing on knits use a ball needle. You can use a universal needle but they aren't perfect and will cause skipping on some fabrics.

Skipped stitches and getting worse


It might be that you have the wrong needle/ thread combination for the fabric that you are using. sharps for wovens, ball point for knits. the heavier the fabric and the thicker the thread the larger needle you need to use.
