I bought a few old Elna machines and a Necchi  -
and revived them  -  with help from here  -  
  and   internet research  +  Yahoo Groups
...  I really hate to see good old sewing machines  
going into  the scrap metal  bin  !

Have you cleaned and lubricated it regularly?  Sounds like something  
has seized up.

NOTE: Do not use *oil* on the gears, use lubricant.

Well my answer would be to bring it to a shop it is well worth repairing  
and likely something very simple. Off the top of my head I would say a  
thread lock in the bobbin area but I have seen mice get in there and  
clog them up with all sorts of things the 5 pounds of raisins was my  
favorite
