Have you checked the needle to see if it's damaged
check also to make sure the needle is inserted in the needle clamp correctly
some times the needle & thread are not compatable---- try this
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

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:

Skipping stitches


Skipped stitches
1. A bent or dull needle
2. The wrong needle for your fabric
knit fabrics require a jersey or ballpoint tip. Most wovens do well with a universal tip, and specialty fibers, like leather or metallic, usually require specific needles.
3. Incorrect machine threading
4. Unbalanced needle thread tension
Start by making relatively small changes and run a test stitch to evaluate the impact. If you need to adjust the tension dial using woven cotton fabric with good quality all-purpose thread and a new needle
5.check the needle is inserted correctly. The needle needs to be pushed as far up the needle shaft as possible. It's easy to insert the needle half way, clamp it down and think it is inserted correctly.
the flat part of the needle should be positioned towards the back. If the needle is not inserted correctly, it will not be able to pull up the bobbin thread and will cause skipped stitches.
6. If the suggestions don't help then it is time for a tune-up.

Skipping Stitches My Singer Confidence machine is skipping stitches. I've cleaned the feed dogs and the stitch hook, changed needles three times, changed thread, adjusted the tension, etc.


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

5. If the above suggestions don't help then the machine needs to be checked

For a timing problem.

Just found a green Necchi BU Nova that is missing a face plate. Any ideas where I could find a replacement?


Try http://www.sewingstyle.com/Necchi-Sewing-Needle-Plates.html - the BU Nova is a 50's era machine so you may have to hunt down a second hand spare part or see if one of the other model plates will fit this model.

Also there are 3 or 4 Necchi Italian machine owner groups on Yahoo, I'd suggest that you join the one called Necchisewingmachineclub and then check out any posts on spare parts and see what you can glean there. Just read the group rules as often they like members to "share" information and don't like newbies to drop in and post a question then disappear. Or ask the same question on several groups (crossposting).

I know that many Super Nova owners love their machines and highly regard them.

Good luck tracking down the part for yours.

Looking for the reverse button on a necchi bu nova


There is no reverse button, it is a lever.The stitch length lever also reverses the feed dogs - when down, it runs forward - at zero, it does not feed at all and when moved up, it reverses the machine. Set your stitch length by loosening the thumbscrew on the vertically moving lever and sliding the plate into position while moving the lever up to the desired mark. Tighten the screw and move the lever down to sew - to reverse just move the lever up until it hits the stop to sew the same stitch length in reverse.
