Hi I am wanting to do a 4cm buttonhole on my Elna Elina 40. The automatic button hole only goes up to 2.5 cm. How do I do a button hole as long as 4 cm please.

Just stitch the buttonhole without the automatic buttonholer. That's how we do it with machines that don't have the buttonhole function. Buttonholes can be done on any sewing machine that has zig-zag capability. A left/right needle position would be helpful, but if that is not available, just be sure to sink the needle into the fabric BEFORE changing the zig-zag width.

I have an Elna Elina 40 and bobbin thread on the top when sewing. I have fixed thread tension up top and then when nothing changed I adjusted bobbin tension and nothing changes. Please help!

Please explain more fully the symptoms your machine is displaying and what you are attempting to do when making adjustments.

If the bobbin thread is showing on top of the fabric, the upper thread is too tight and/or the bobbin tension is too loose.

Set the upper tension to the midway point between high & low number, then retest your machine. If the bobbin thread is still showing on top, then the bobbin tension is a bit too loose.

FWIW, it is normal when using 2 different color threads that you can see a "dot" of the other thread from the opposite side (especially with thin, fine fabric). If you try tightening both tensions to get rid of the "dot," the fabric will probably begin to pucker. If you are seeing a dot of each thread on the opposite side, your tension is perfect! Try stitching thicker fabric and see if the dots disappear. When sewing, it is best to use the same color thread for top and bottom or use a thread color that closely matches the fabric. Then the dots blend in and are not as noticeable.

I would like to know what stitch number to put my sewing machine onto to stitch stretch material. I have a Elna 40 sewing machine regards Judy

Looks like stitch #06 might be a stretch stitch. You could probably also use a slight 08 or 09 zig-zag. Unless you are sewing something really stretchy (lycra) IMHO, a slight zig-zag is fine and actually is a lot faster than a stretch stitch which takes a few stitches forward and then one or two stitches in reverse. The stitch #09 is something that I use frequently for stretch fabrics.
