I recently have had some serious problems sewing using fusible interfacing.  I use it for pockets on
bags/purses and have always had great luck.  Using the same interfacing I have used several times before
I keep loosing stitches.  I have changed the needle, rethreaded the machine, changed bobbins and nothing works.
Any thoughts??  I sure could use some help.
Thank you

It sounds like the machine is skipping stitches, correct?  Is your machine sewing normally on plain fabric?

If so, have you tried a different spool of thread, or a different kind of thread?

If that doesn't help...
Without seeing anything, I would guess the interfacing is grabbing the thread or the needle.  I'd try a different interfacing.
