You can either take the machine in for repairs or, use another sewing machine (if you have one that uses the same type of bobbin) for bobbin winding or purchase a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder - search the Internet for the best price.

Its been idle for too long and needs a good service. Try and trickle some oil behind the stop motion wheel. But what it actually needs is to have the wheel removed and then apply oil to the shaft. Careful when you start again as oil will fly out from the wheel so mind your drapes and wall decor.

SOURCE: I cannot loosen stop motion
Sometimes the knob locks so tight it requires a good strong beefy man to loosen it. Turn it counter clockwise!! You can also wind without loosening the knob, just MAKE SURE to unthread the machine and to sew for winding only. It works for all industrial machines, without loosening the knob.

On these old singers, there is a locking washer that controls the tighten and release mechanism. If it is not in the proper place your efforts to tighten and loosen to engage the sewing functions do nothing.
