Feed Dogs on Sewing Machine Not Working?

This is for a class I'm doing. If your feed dogs are not working can you still use your sewing machine?

For the most part the answer is no. Some types of sewing machine function (darning, quilting, thick fabrics, thread painting-embroidery) need the feed dogs down, but for the most part, sewing a seam requires functioning feed dogs to move the fabric through the machine at the right timing to create a proper lock-stitch.

If you have a machine with feed dogs 'stuck' down, look for a switch, dial, lever, knob, or computer setting to get them back up.

If that doesn't work, or the feed dogs are stuck in the up position but aren't moving, the machine needs a visit to the qualified repair tech for servicing. The problem could be something as simple as a piece of thread or lint caught in the feed dogs, or something very serious - and the only person who can fix it is a qualified repair tech.
