Easiest way is to create a bar tack at one end of the buttonhole (widest stitch width and stitch length set to 0). Stitch maybe 4 or 5 stitches.
Then move needle all the way to the left, set stitch length to very short (maybe somewhere between 0 & 1), width to slightly less than half, stitch forward to the end of the buttonhole.
Then make another bar tack (as above). Move needle all the way to the right, set to less than half width, short stitch length, and stitch in REVERSE to first bar tack. To tie off, set width to 0 and length to 0 and stitch 2-3 times in place. Raise presser foot, pull gently on fabric and clip threads.

Need instructions for Singer buttonhole attachment 103233.


I found a manual for several Singer Buttonholers here: http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_machine_company/manuals/singer-sewing-machine-manuals.html . I'm not sure of the part number for the Professional Buttonholer Model, which looks like the one for my Singer Touch & Sew. Mine is part #161829 (if I read the box correctly).

I hope these help.

How do you do button holes


Firstly look in manual. Secondly, search online for manual. Thirdly, I seem to remember that you had to select the buttonhole function on the machine. If you haven't got one then you need to sew two parallel lines of stitching very close together, then overstitch at each before finally cutting between the parallel stitches.

No longer have my manual for my euro-pro model 6131 need to see how to use different feet


You don't need the manual for that, although its always very helpful. www.Sewusa.com have a manual for the 6130 but I dont know how close that is to your machine, but you could certainly email them and ask. Or contact the local Euro-Pro dealership may well be the easiest solution.

Different feet are for different techniques and any good sewing techniques guide book should help you through.

Here is a good website on sewing feet.
http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/

If you are assembling garments then you will still use the standard pressure foot for 90% of the work. You would change to use the zipper foot to put in zips, maybe the blind hemming foot to turn up straight edge fabric (can't use on curved hems very well unless its a knit) or a rolled hem foot for turning in a small edge and stitching it. And of course the buttonhole foot, for getting nice neat buttonholes.

Your machine's accessories case may have these feet and a few others.
You may find sufficient info at www.sewing.about.com on where and how to use these feet.

I have temporarily misplaced the instruction manual to my White 979 sewing machine. I need to put this shirt in todays mail and I have forgotten the direction to make a buttonhole. I s there a place I...


Automatic BUTTONHOLE making with 979:
  1. Carefully mark the position of buttonhole on your garment.
  2. Slide the button carrier and insert the button.
  3. Attach the buttonhole foot.
  4. Place the garment under the foot so that the needle pierces the fabric at the beginning of buttonhole.
  5. Lower the buttonhole lever and the presser foot lever.
  6. Push the buttonhole lever away from you.
  7. Start machine to complete entire buttonhole.
NOTE:
  • While making buttonholes, maintain an even sewing speed for uniform buttonholes.
  • When buttonholes are completed, be sure to push up the buttonhole lever as gar as it can go.

Instructions for buttonhole 40. I do not have instructions for making a 40 automatic buttonhole.


Instructions are on page 132 of the manual. Use either foot 5A or No.10 (which is more complicated). Select stitch No.40 then enter the length of the buttonhole you want to make using the number keys. If you want to define where the second bartack goes manually, press key 6 (under "Man") and you will have to press the Reverse key when the second row is where you want to finish the buttonhole. You will not be able to repeat this same size buttonhole automatically if you chose Manual bartack. By pressing OK after setting the length of the buttonhole you will be presented with a screen where you can adjust the width of the buttonhole (wider for heavy fabrics, narrower for finer fabrics) if you want.

Bernina Activa 131: buttonhole problem


There are TWO buttons on the machine that have the little u-turn on them. Look for the other one. That is the one that makes the second half of the buttonhole. Look in the owner's manual, it may tell you where it is on your machine. I spent a long time swearing at my machine before I figured out that the reverse is not the only button with the u-turn arrow. The manual is not clear on this. Why they use the same symbol twice is beyond me. Mine is on the front of the machine, down by the needle. Hope this helps.
