Troubleshooting Missed/Skipped Stitches

Missed Stitches happen when the Top Thread doesn’t connect to the Bobbin. Missed Stitches might appear to be similar to Registration Issues, but the causes are different. Missed Starts are when the bobbin fails to connect at the start of the sew. Verify you are getting a Missed Stitch issue and follow the steps below.
