First get a new quality needle of the right size for your machine use a good quality hemming thread and check your tensions. If this fails to fix the problem you will probably have to have the timing checked.

You put the hook (the half moon thing with a sharp point on it) in the machine by placing it opposite the little curved bar. Make sure it is seated properly on the ridge. The you take the race, the circular part with a small plate on the top and place that over the hook(the plate side will be facing up). It will only fit a certain way, it could have a slot that a notch fits into (that is usually how it goes). Then slide the arms over it and they will snap into place. Once done, turn the handwheel and make sure everything moves smoothly. If not, you'll need to start over as something isn't seated correctly. Then you can install the bobbin case as usual.

When putting your shirring elastic on the bobbin, don't thread the elastic through the bobbin holder,adjust the stitch length longer,and loosen the tension, other wise if you want to put it through the bobbin holder you have to loosen the tension screw on the bobbin holder, and then you have to adjust it back for ordinary sewing,

If you can lower or disengage the feed dogs you can stitch free motion.
If the the feed dogs cannot be adjusted as described, you can set the stitch length to zero.
You can also tape an index card over the feed dogs and punch a hole where the needle needs to enter the needle/face plate.
A darning or free motion foot is needed.
Take a presser foot with you when shopping for the foot as it is important to match the shank length.
Newer sewing machines are low shank and the older ones long shank.
You can also order online at Clotilde (see "which foot to use" for a guide).
