Why does my sewing machine skip stitches on stretch fabric?

The most common cause of a sewing machine skipping stitches is a problem with the sewing machine needle. The needle may be slightly bent, even if you can not see the bend. It may have developed a dull point from use, or it may have a nick in it.
