SOURCE: fabric does not move forward
When I first got my creative 1473 it was pretty much the same story... after gentle repeated tries over the next few days the presser bar came down all the way. It simply hadn't been touched in 20 years and needed some 'warming up', so to speak.

Hi. This can be terribly frustrating, but the most likely cause for the bobbin thread not catching is that the needle is inserted wrong. There is a flat side on the shank of every needle and that has to be facing a specific way on your machine or the needle's grooves can't make the stitch. On most modern machines, it's my experience that the flat side goes to the rear, facing away from the operator, but some of my older machines need the flat side facing to the left or to the right.
Another thing that can cause the bobbin thread not to pick up is a bent needle, but in my experience it's usually the needle not in correctly.
(Cost me $85.00 to find this out!)
Let me know if this works, ok?

Have you changed your needle? If so do a visual check on the bobbin case area.
-With the bobbin door open, so you can see the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you and you should see the needle come down and the top thread catch and loop around the bobbin thread and pull both to the top.
-If if is not, it is going to be your hook to needle timing or clearance.
When the needle is on the up movement, the hook should pass right above the eye of the needle.
