What causes this?
You'll probably have to click on the picture to see the problem better. I'm doing the "elastic overlock stitch" on this Wheeling Triangles block and every so often it skips a stitch. I changed the needle and the bobbin, still doing it. Any one have any ideas? I was on a roll with this cute quilt.
I got nothin! but I love the stitching and think its going to turn out great! Sorry I can't help! Love the picture of the jars from your previous post!ReplyDelete
The only reason I know would cause skipped stiches like this is if you're using a defective or wrong type of needle. Have you tried using a ball point or stretch needle? The stitch sure looks cute on your project. Hope you can figure out what's wrong.ReplyDelete
Does the book for your machine have a trouble-shooting section that may mention skipped stitches? Hope you figure it out...although I don't think it is ruining this particular project, so don't get overly stressed about it right now, okay?ReplyDelete
The pic is a little blurry when I enlarge it, but it seems it is making the hole- just not connecting the thread in it.ReplyDelete
Are you sewing fast? if so try slowing down. (but I don't think that is it)
Not sure what would cause that. I can see why it would be frustrating.
I agree with the above. The needle is doing its thing, but the bobbin thread isn't keeping up. I just had this problem and these were the suggested fixes: wrong or dull needle, needle set too high, dust/debris under sole plate (especially under bobbin). Turned out I was using the wrong bobbin altogether. Who knew?ReplyDelete
It sounds like the needle...I agree!ReplyDelete
I would try a sharp needle, not a ball point, and maybe you need a larger size needle. I guess you'll just have to play around til it works.ReplyDelete
