Is it possible for your feed dogs to "get out of alignment"? Recently, the feed dogs seem to pull the fabric to the left! It does it even with jelly roll strips, so I know there isn't any drag on the fabric to pull it. I've had my inexpensive Brother machine about 18 months, and it seems to have started about a month ago. I have cleaned it, but have not had it serviced. Opinions, please......

Is it with the walking foot or not?

Actually, it does it with my regular foot, my quilting foot AND the walking foot.

I would double check to make sure that you put all of the pieces back into the machine correctly. One small shift can make a difference. (Don't ask how I know to double check this kind of thing.) If that is all in working order and nothing new has lodged itself down there, then I would take it in for a check up.

I know that sometimes my feed dogs don't feed well if I am sewing a really narrow seam or a bulky one and they can't grab both sides evenly. That doesn't sound like what you are describing though. My guess it is time for a check up.
