I have a nice, medium-heavy black fabric, probably rayon/poly, and for the first time ever, the stiches just don’t sew! It is very strange. Everything seems to be working, but when I remove the fabric, the stiches just aren’t there, or it starts and stops – maybe three stitches come out.
I brought it to a professional seamstress and she was able to zip through it, no problem – she did a whole side of a skirt for me. I took it home and attached the zipper to the other seam, which went well, but the rest of the seam won’t sew up! The seamstress has a fancy Bernina and I have an inexpensive Janome. She suggested I use a thicker needle, which I did, with no luck. This should have been an easy, aline skirt!!!
Any suggestions? Please! Thanks!
