Skipped stitches


Skipped stitches could result from several different origins. First, easiest, and least expensive thing, try a brand new needle. However, if it is failing to pick up the bobbin thread all together, then it is probably out of time (search for sewing machine timing or take it for service).

Here are other suggestions for intermittent skipping:

Machine. Skips stitches and the thread breaks in the top tension.


First, install a brand new needle. Confirm that you are using the correct needle for the thread and fabric being stitched, ie the needle eye could be too small for the thread, the fabric is coarse or sticky causing the thread to wear/fray causing breakage, the needle is blunt or bent, a ball point needle is being used on woven fabric or vice versa...
All About Needles

Second, remove the thread from the machine. Always RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--make sure the correct thread pathway is followed (consult the manual).

Verify that the tension is not set too tight. The tension is correct when both upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric without any puckering of the fabric.

Use good quality thread--avoid old or bargain bin variety. And, use the same thread for the upper and bobbin. Some thread brands may work better than others in your machine. You may need to experiment to find ones that work best.

There is also the possibility that there is a nick or burr somewhere that is catching the thread. You can wrap your index finger with old hosiery (or similar fine fabric) and rub around the thread path, in the bobbin/hook area, needle plate, etc. A small burr can be smoothed with a fine emery board. A big burr may require replacement of the part or service by a technician.

I have a futura ce 150 and my bobbin thread won't catch


Are you able to bring the bobbin thread to the top of the needle plate, but it's skipping stitches, or you can't "catch" the bobbin thread to start sewing at all.

If you can't "catch" it at all, your machine's hook is no longer synchronizing, and you will need to have it retimed by a technician. The good news is, timing is not something that is unique per manufacturer, which means ANY sewing machine technician should be able to do it.

My New Home skips stitches. I have cleaned it, changed needles, adjusted the tension and tried different bobbins .



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

it's also possible that the machine could be slightly out of time
