Home • Industry FAQs • Why does the stitching look staggered on a seam

Staggered stitches have a negative impact on seam appearance as deviation from the stitching line leads to a perception of poor quality. The needle is vibrating or deflecting.

  1. Is the correct needle being used, check and change as required.
  2. Is the needle bent or does it have a blunt needle point, check and change as required.
  3. Is the needle to thread size correct, check and change as required.
  4. Is there movement in the feed dog, if so remove play in feeds.
  5. Is this due to poor fabric control and presser foot bounce, if so, increase pressure on presser foot.
