Why isn't my fabric moving forward as I sew? Here's one solution.This is just a random post. But I think that it may help some people. A sewing machine can be a pain in more ways. One pain is your sewing machine not feeding your fabric. In other words, as you "tried" sewing, your sewing machine stitches just want to remain in one place. Your stitches look fine, your fabric is not moving forward (or backward) as you sew. No, you wouldn't want to pull your fabric forward. This can mess up your machine and your stitches would not look even. Anyways, I found the solution to this. At least to my problem.
Problem: My sewing machine will not feed my fabric. My fabric does not move forward (or backward) while I sew.
Solution: I raised my feed dog. Yep! That's it. I must have accidentally moved the switch the last time that I replaced the bobbin.
How do I raise my sewing machine feed dogs? In my sewing machine, there's a switch next to the the bobbin holder. I pushed this little lever to my left to raise the feed dogs. That was it!
Lever pushed to my right and the feed dogs are down.
Lever is pushed to my left and my sewing machine's feed dogs are up and ready to sew.
