Edge borders where they shouldn't be

I'm learning to apply UV textures in Maya 2013, seems quite easy, but sometimes I get weird problems I cannot solve like this one.
There are some edges that simply reject being sew. It seems they're border edges, but they're in the middle of the geometry. How can I get rid of this, so I can sew them?
Thank you in advance

If its a texture border, you may be missing UV's on some faces.

Or maybe the geometry isn't vert welded.

The UVs were fine, and the verts and edges seemed to be well weld as well.

Finally I fixed it deleting the "bridged" face, and extruding an edge and merging to fill the hole.

Yeah if you are using 2013/the legacy bridge tool, I would avoid bridging a hole shut. I would suggest using the fill hole tool and then splitting that new face up if necessary.

However if you are using the modeling toolkit/maya 2014, you shouldn't have any problems with bridging a hole. I've noticed with 2013 or the legacy bridge tool that if you try to bridge 2 of the 4 edges of a hole, that the two edges you did not select end up with a problem exactly as you described where they aren't actually connected, even though it's a single edge. If I recall correctly the mesh cleanup tool will actually catch that problem.
