SOURCE: material will not feed across
This machine has a pressure regulator on the left side.You should look to see that it is not loosened. When you lift up on the presser foot it should have resistance.
Then look at the feed dogs to see that they are moving, Set the stitch length at 4 and turn the hand wheel. The teeth should move towards the back of the machine. They should also be slightly above the needle plate as they go back and below the surface of the plate as they come forward.
If they don't rise above the plate , remove the needle plate and clean between the slots of the teeth.

SOURCE: backward stitching
Knowing which kind of machine you have helps alot. Just guessing but maybe the reverse mechanism is stuck and needs some oil in it to free it up. Or the buttonhole mechanism is stuck in reverse part of it.
Probably you should have it looked at.

SOURCE: will not feed material or sew
Before you take it to a repair shop make sure that your one step buttonhole lever has not been moved by mistake. That happened to me just yesterday. If your machine keeps sewing in reverse all the time that could be your problem. It happened when I was going over all the parts in my sewing class. Although material was feeding through but everything was sewing in reverse. Check that out and make sure your buttonhole lever (#14) on the diagram is pushed up. I don't know if that is your problem but it is something you can try.

Sounds like the machine's age is causing the lubrication to get sticky.
Try changing the pattern by moving the pattern selector around.
Take out the bobbin and remove the thread and presser foot, raise the presser lever, set the pattern to zig zag, set the stitch length to maximum and run the machine at full speed. While it's running, repeatedly press the reverse lever all the way down. Run it for at least a few minutes.
