Question about Sewing Machines
The fabric does not move along, so the stitches are on the same spot, no length.
The first thing to do is make sure the feed dogs are supposed to be feeding the fabric through. Check the lever or button that raises and lowers the feed dogs. Make sure it is in the position for ordinary sewing. If it is not, then move it to the correct position. Then, without any fabric under the presser foot, turn the main shaft of the machine by hand and watch the feed dogs underneath the presser foot. Don't simply look down at the dogs. Lower your viewpoint so that you're looking from front to back just SLIGHTLY above the horizontal level of the sewing deck. While looking at the area right where the feed dogs are, watch to see if the dogs a rising SLIGHTLY above the level of the deck. If they aren't, and if the feed dog lever is in the correct position for ordinary sewing, then something is out of adjustment or is broken. If you are not mechanically inclined or if you are totally terrified of opening up your machine to take a look, you'd better take it to a shop and let them do it.
