How do I unjam my sewing machine?

I am going to guess that you have experienced a "bird's nest" of the top thread becoming entangled under the needle plate. Gently lift the fabric just enough to see the thread and using a craft knife like an xacto blade, very carefully work at cutting the fabric free. Give the bobbin area a good cleaning. Then be sure to check and make sure the top thread is traveling through the right path before you try stitching again.

Have a pfaff2036.wife was sewing and it what

Try unplugging machine from wall. Remove the tread and needle.
Turn hand wheel backwards, the hook probably has a piece of thread jammed in the race. If you can turn backwards look for the small piece of thread remove it. New needle and rethread plug in and try again.

The material feed isn't working on the borrowed machine that I am using. Is there an adjustment? I have to feed the material by hand!

Are the feed dogs up? Can you see them moving?
Sew without fabric and you should see the feed dogs moving back and forth under the needle plate. There may be jammed threads in it if it is not moving. Not sure about your machine but most needles plates either flip up or can be unscrewed to check underneath for clogging.

My new ruffling foot keeps jamming my machine

Take the foot off and check for a small burr in the area that pushes the material through. If there is a burr, it will get caught, especially on lace. The burr can be removed with a very fine abrasive stone or the emery srea from a match pack.
