Are the feed dogs lowered or just not moving? Some machines have a switch to lower the feed dogs for darning and free motion sewing. Look in your manual. hth

RE: fabric isn't moving

Have you changed the pressure on your foot? My machine has a setting that I can change the pressure that is put on the sewing foot depending on the fabric weight. But the feed dogs sounds like a better answer if you've done nothing else to change settings.

RE: fabric isn't moving

Have you checked your stitch length?
