Be sure to install a brand new needle. Bent/damaged needles will often cause skipped stitches. Also, make sure to use the correct needle for the thread and fabric. AVOID old thread or thread from the bargain bin. They are cheap and there's a reason why they are...

If you are sewing stretch fabric you need BALL POINT NEEDLE. If sewing woven fabric, use SHARP NEEDLES. using wrong needle will cause skipped stiches. OR It may be time to change the needle. Old needles have been known to skip as well. I know there are "universal" needles...universal parts fit nothing (properly) according to murphys law.

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.

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

If your machine is hard to turn you need to look for threads which are bunched up around moving parts or it needs oil badly. This, combined with skipping stitches, indicates a need for a technician to adjust the timing and generally service the machine.
