Stitch "CSI"

Newbie Question - New to me machine Consew 206rb-2.

What would cause my stitch to look like this.
It looks like the thread goes in the fabric on one side and then exit the other side of the needle hole.
I can't topstitch if it looks like this.

Sawteeth! It can happen for a few reasons. In my case, it happened because I was shifting the material slightly as it fed through the machine

I tried to let it feed by itself, same result.
I dug a little deeper and it looks like the hook is actually shifting the material over when it's hooking the thread. ??? Now what?
Can the hook be aligned better or is it possible it's bad?

A sewing machine mechanic told me that a bad hook bushing can cause this. Why don't you take the machine in to have it checked out?

Stitching is not perfectly straight, it angles slightly from left to right, but not as much as yours. If it's a used machine, have you gotten the machine checked over, timed, and set up by a professional sewing machine mechanic? That will be the best $100 you will ever spend, and a lot smarter than throwing new parts at it.

Yes, it is a used machine from a sofa/chair upholsterer.
I think I will look into getting it tuned up.

You are right though, it's not too bad. I do notice that all stiching is a little skewed. Anyways, my seats will be black on black for my first project. Black on black probably won't be that noticable. When I get my material and thread, I'll give it another try to see how it looks with the actual materials I'll be using.
