    what type of fabric are you trying to sew?
    If it is several layers or a bulky fabric, you may need to drop your feed dogs and hand feed the material through.
    your manual will tell you where the adjustment lever is.

My fabric won't feed


Check that the feed dogs have not been dropped for darning or free motion quilting. If the feed dogs do not rise above the needleplate, they will not pull the fabric through the machine.

Feed dogs do wear (which is why one should always sew with fabric against the feed dogs--never on bare metal).

Something else that happens is that gunk builds up between the teeth of the feed dogs so that they no longer have the grip they need to move the fabric.

Another thing to check is the presser foot "pressure." A lot of sewing machines have a pressure adjustment that increases or decreases the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and feed dogs. (Consult your owners manual.) he pressure can be adjusted according to the type of fabric being sewn.

Fabric gets stuck when sewing and fabris snags underneath


Some people put a thin tissue underneath so it won't snag.
Hope this works.

I have a singer 6268 a few days ago fabric jammed underneath the plate and it threw off the timing. I just adjusted the timing but now it won't stitch the needle works fine but won't catch bottom thread to...


It's a very risky thing for an unprofessional to adjust timing. Very tricky. Is your needle new and unbent? If everything is rethreaded correctly etc and it still won't work then you will just have to take it
for a refit.

I can start working withmy baby lock, the needle brokes verytime i runthe machine , and i can not sew


If this machine has a needle position adjustment and it is on the center position -

and you are sewing a zig-zag stitch and using a presser foot with a narrow opening this could break the needle

and the needle plate is a single hole, this will break the needle.

and you are sewing a straight stitch with a new needle and it breaks, the machine needs to go in for servicing.

Feeding teeth on machine


There is either a "darning" option knob on machine, lower right hand, or a metal rod on top right that you use to lower the feeddogs.
