Here's what the manual says:

Before sewing, fit the button-hold foot to the machine (long white plastic thing with red, ruler like markings).

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the left hand side. Set the dial to "1" position. Sew the left side and raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the top and bottom. Set the dial to "2" position. Sew 5-6 stitches and raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the right hand side. Set the dial to "3" position. Sew the right side. Raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the top and bottom. Set the dial to "4" position. Sew 5-6 stitches and raise the needle.

Hope that helps...

You will notice that there is a dial to make button holes. Yes, use the template and turn the nob to form the four sides of the button hole. Try it on a scrape of fabric until you figure it out. That is what I do. Good luck!

Instructions for making a buttonhole


The method will depend on your make & model machine, although the vintage sewing machine buttonhole method will work on all zig-zag machines (just requires manually measuring and adjusting the stitch length & width during the process):

Be sure there is a stabilizer between the fabric where the buttonhole is located so the fabric will not stretch or tear.

How do make buttonholes with the Necchi 3102? I followed the instructions from the manual but cannot get the machine to properly make the buttonhole. Any suggestions? Persimmon


Expand exactly the symptoms of what is not working with your buttonhole function. There are generally 5 or 6 steps to a built-in buttonhole, so we need to know which function(s) is/are not working.

How to Make Buttonhole on Your Sewing Machine Sew4Home

BTW, any zig-zag sewing machine can be used to make buttonholes without the built-in buttonholer or a buttonhole foot. The built-in buttonholer just took the manual method and made a dial to switch to the next step. You can do that manually on your machine. You just need to perform each step manually: knot-on, stitch the bartack, zig-zag forward, bartack, zig-zag backward, and tie-off. I've made many buttonholes manually on sewing machines before having a machine with built-in buttonhole or a buttonhole foot. Just be sure to practice on some scrap fabric first before trying it on your garment.

Is it possible to override the automatic buttonhole setting on a Necchi ex30?


Are you asking if you can do a buttonhole without the special buttonhole feature? If so--of course you can. Sewists do it all the time on machines without the buttonhole feature or special feet. Be sure to practice on some scrap fabric first.

1995 400 series need to make a button hole


Consult your owner's manual. If the machine has a buttonhole function, you will find the instructions in the manual. If not, never fear as you can make buttonholes with any machine that has zig-zag capability. You can find a multitude of web sites and YouTube videos to learn how to make buttonholes on a machine without the buttonhole function. Just be sure to practice on scrap fabric and get the process working well before trying it on your garment.

you should a buttonhole button that must be pushed on the machine

I have a 9960 singer machine and am trying to use the buttonhole presser foot for the first time and I can not get it to sew T


the buttonhole foot snaps on to the presser bar, there's a little lever at the back of the presser bar that releases the foot, then put the buttonhole foot down on the needle plate & use the presser foot lifter (number 11) to lower the presser bar down onto the buttonhole foot & you'll hear a click sound when it snaps on & make sure to use the buttonhole lever(number 31) because the machine won't sew a buttonhole unless that lever is pulled down.

I need to learn how to make a buttonhole on my Husqvarna 210 electronic sewing machine.My manual is gone.


You may be able to still get that manual, check with your dealer. If not you can call Viking at: 1-800-474-6437 if it's out of print for a photo copy of the original owners manual.

To make a buttonhole do the following:

1. Turn the selector dial to the top position, That is the first step of the buttonhole.
2. Turn the stitch length dial (the bottom dial) to the picture of the buttonhole, it's between the 0 and the 1 on the dial.
3 Put on the "C" foot and put the tension dial, (the small dial just above and to the right of the needle) on 4.
4. On a test fabric, sew about an inch or so and stop. Turn the selector dial down one click and sew the bar tack of the buttonhole. Just do a few passes, don't build up alot of stitches here.
5. Turn the dial down another click to the 3rd step, the right side of the buttonhole and sew until you reach the place where you started the left column of the buttonhole and stop.
6. Turn the dial UPWARD one click to the bar tack position again and do another bar tack like you did at the top of the buttonhole. Don't build up alot of stitches here, about three passes does the trick.
7 Remove the fabric from the machine and when you cut the threads, leave a tail about 2 inches or so of the thread. From the back side of the buttonhole, pull gently on the thread and a loop from the front thread will appear on the backside. Pull the front thread to the rear and tie off the threads and then cut them close to the knot you tied and the buttonhole will not come apart.
