You probably already tried these, but juuuust in case...
1. Use a much smaller (thinner) needle. Make sure it's brand new, with a sharp point and no burrs or rough spots.

2. Assuming you're using a straight stitch, use a "straight stitch" foot. Delicate fabric tends to get sucked into the relatively wide zig-zag hole.

See how small the needle hole is?
