These machines are known to have this problem. The feed lift cam has a groove worn in it that won't allow the feed dogs to come back up. It is on the lower shaft and needs to be replaced. You can get the feed dogs back up by taking off the needle plate and lifting them up manually while turning the hand wheel. They should stay up until you drop them again.
Some people will not replace the cam and live with it.

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.

SOURCE: Feed Dogs won't come back up!
Have you tried sewing with the machine after setting feed dogs to up position. You may already realise but it takes a full revolution of the machine to engage and raise the feed dogs after setting the feed lift control to up (the feed dods will drop as soon as you adjust the feed lift control but will not raise until a full revolution of the stitching mechanism).
If you have already tried this unsuccessfully try removing the cover below the feed dogs and spray lubricant on the feed linkages and try freeing them.
