Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Did the feed dogs get lowered? Look for a switch or button on the back near the sewing area. Sometimes they are under the flat bed attachment

I hate to sound dismissive but: read the manual. Duh. It is not as written above: drop dog........
The feed dog is the toothed pieces in the sewing machine deck, under the needle, which move the material away from you when you push the operating pedal.
Dropping the dog - ie making it inoperative - (see manual for how to on your machine) means the material has to be propelled by hand under the needle. This is especially good for freehand machine embroidery as it means you can move the material in any direction whilst sewing.
It can be easier to freehand embroider if your material is fixed in to an embroidery hoop to hold it flat while you work.

Remove the needle plate and clean out the accumulated lint.
Not a bad idea to give this whole region a regular treat in this way.

Have you actually put fabric under the foot, and started sewing a few stitches? On some machines the feed dogs do not reengage until the machine has gone through a full stitch sequence. So it looks like they are still down and nothing is happening until you've actually pressed the pedal and tried to stitch again. Also some computerised machines, try turning off and leaving off for 30 seconds, then turn on and try to stitch, sometimes this will work too.
