I think I just broke my mom's sewing machine. I was working on a hem for the lining of a purse I'm making, and the needle spazzed and just...stayed down in the fabric rather than coming up like it's supposed to (the needle automatically goes up when you take your foot off the pedal). I tried the button that brings the needle down for when you need to turn corners, but it didn't bring the needle up. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? Mom's at work and won't be home until later today, and I'm just a little worried about it. Should I cut the fabric so that I can get it out of the way, or what?

Edit: I'm sorry for continuing to post my questions up, but I'm trying to put a button and elastic on as a clasp for the bag. Should I hand sew the elastic, and if so does anyone have any tips for this?
