There are several causes for skipped stitches. A few of them are related to the needle:
· Check the needle first to see if it is damaged and exchange if needed.
· If there is no damage to the needle, the needle may be of the wrong weight.
Always choose a needle weight that fits the embroidered material and the thread being used. If the eye is too wide in relation to the thread weight, it can cause skipped stitches.
Check if the needle was set in right. It should be set in the right direction and up to the stop in the needle shaft.
If you can’t find a cause for skipped stitches at the needle, the following reasons are possible:
· The threading may be wrong or incomplete; if this is the case, please correct it.
· On difficult materials, the direction embroidery may not be the most suitable for the fabric. In this case, the sample or material should be rotated 90° and/or the embroidery direction for satin stitches and step stitches should be punched differently.
· Check the looper settings and adjust them so that the head grabs the thread loop safely.
