THREAD BREAKING? SKIPPED STITCHES?
Is your thread breaking? Are you getting skipped stitches? SO annoying when you just want to sew! Here are 3 crucial steps for troubleshooting to get better results.
1. Rethread your sewing machine
Sounds so simple, and it’s often overlooked! Thread could be caught somewhere, maybe you skipped a step or it came out of a loop.
2. Change your needle
Even if you’ve just put a fresh one in. I mean it. Try one from a different package. Sometimes they can have a burr in the hole and thread catches on it, resulting in breakage. We recommend Schmetz needles in all of our machines.
3. Clean out your bobbin area
It can get really dusty! Here are some of the worst spots on the inner workings of my machine. So embarrassing!
These 3 steps will usually do the trick and make things right as rain again. 🙂
