Question about Bernina Activa 130
The needle will move up and down, but the fabric doesn't feed forward. I have just finished doing embrodiery (with the embrodiery) module. Once I removed it, replaced the needle, feed dog, and bobbin the machine no longer will sew. The thread (upper and bobbin) is threaded correctly... I am *stumped*!
It sounds like your feeddogs are still down in the embroidery mode. It should be a button on the right side of the machine. they have to be up for sewing and down for embroidery.

I have a Janome, and when switching from embroidery back to sewing, I must touch a button that electronically moves the mode from embroidery to sewing. In some cases, I've also had to turn off the machine for a few minutes and then turn it on again.
I used to own a Viking - it had a little door covering the attachment link for the embroidery arm. If it wasn't perfectly shut, the machine wouldn't convert to sewing mode, regardless of what button I pushed.
