Question about Brother Sewing Machines
When this happens it is usually because the thread-needle combination isn't correct for your fabric.
Your Brother's manual should have a guide but if that's not the case you can view this one for help.

Hey. It's full out possible that you have it on the right setting...but concider this - the switcher inside the sewing machine could be broken (ie. It's moving to different stitches - but not the one you have the outside set for)
It happened to me (pc o crap singer model)

When a machine skips stitches like you described either the needle is in backwards, the machine's thread could have jumped out of a guide, the needle is the wrong style for the fabric being sewed or you need to take it to a technician. So try a new needle first, they can be bent without looking bent and skip just like you described. Then double check your threading. If the fabric your sewing is a stretch fabric then a ball point needle should be used. A sharp type point needle will not sew on stretch fabric. If your machine has a drop in bobbin or a bobbin that loads from the front of your machine, the flat part of your needle faces the rear of the machine. Good Luck, I hope this helps.

this is caused by uneven winding of the bobbin, sometimes the spool of thread winds unevenly when it travels up and down the spool. the best solution i have found is to use small spools of thread when winding the bobbins
