Ive complained to our mechanics that perhaps and machine can work its way out of timing slowly. they insisted it doesnt happen. However I think they are coming around to that reality. Computerized machines are just plain as different from old ones as computerized cars are from the old ones.

Skipped stitches CAN be a sign of a timing problem.  Search "timing" here within the video section at SWN and you should find a tutorial demonstrating how to re-set your machine's timing.  It's very easy.

Hi Susan! Great Tutorial. I got problem with my machine. What should I do when my stitches don't get right. The problem is I got this jumping stitches that give me headache. I've tight my bobbin but it still can't fix the problem. What Should I do?

The thicker the thread the looser the tension. Righty tighty,,,lefty loosy. Simple phrase to help ya remember.
