3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / skipped stitches (only on the right hand side) on: March 22, 2011 07:30:29 AM
i have a janome qxl605
im trying to sew a knit fabric (not 100%cotton) and only a stretch of about an inch just the one direction.
my problem im having is when sewing zig zag its skipping the stitches o the right had side (my right looking at the  machine)
it sews a straight stitch all the way to the left perfectly
and sews all stitches fine on non knit fabrics
i tried putting paper under to help but that only alloud the machine to pick up say every 4th zig zag bit with the rest still skiping

basicaly the best im getting is ____/\_____/\__/\__________ which sucks

ive tried all my needles from regular to jersey thick and thin
tried upping the tension lowering it
tried changing the presser foot tension
tried re threading
tried differnt feet

my manual says to use janome blue tipped needles if it skips on knits does anyone know if these really help???

any suggestions would help as im completly numplussed

i dunno but i suspect its to do with how wide you could zig zag with it

hmmmm i cant see any screw its attached with >_<
but if i hole it down even just a millimeter and turn the machine on it does indeed stop the bobbin case flying around and jamming.
where abouts is your screw located?

thanks for your reply
mines a janome but ive looked for (and brought a new) bobbin case (25 pounds 0_0 )and the brother one kept popping up in my searches
by the metal trigger do you mean the springy bar that goes across or the lil bit that stops it oing clockwise??

and how would i tighten that bit >_<

hi well i got my machine a month ago and its been lovely sewing straight out of the box no problems easy to thread and not too loud does everything i want

but today i was asked to fix my brothers fave jeans as hes worn a hole right along the thick inside seam was going to be a simple stitch it shut thing but i couldnt be botherd so had my machine going super fast n BAM needle bend and jams and such. i open up the metal plate thing and have discoverd this







and when looking at the bobbin case this is the damage visable






do you more knowledgeable  people reckon the damage to the bobbin case is causing it not to sit still in the machine or am i missing something even more terrible

please help if you can any suggestions would be good
