when the fabric does not move then the feed dogs under the needle plate need to be checked to see if there up or down.
if the feed dogs are down then the lever or switch needs to be pushed up into the correct position
if the feed dogs are up & they are not moving the fabric like there suppose to, cause it's there job to move the fabric against the presser foot,, then they need to be check

the gears that do the zig zag stitches should be checked to make sure there not worn & weather they might need be be greased

Take apart the machine. Remove the screws; just remember where you took them out of. All of the pieces are just covers to cover the moving mechanisms.
Wherever metal rubs on metal, oil it. There is often a hole in a metal piece that goes around another piece. Put a small drop of oil in the hole. There are usually lots of holes in lots of metal pieces, meant for oil.

Sometimes with thick fabric you forget to drop the presser foot. Make sure you are doing that.

Try reading the USB memory stick on a PC to verify it functions.

Try formatting a new or different known good memory stick using your sewing machine.
