One step button Hole V for Singer Sewing Machine

Well, I somehow managed to misplace my Manual for my Singer 7422, and I need to know how to use the 'One step ButtonHole' foot. I have an idea slightly how, but I'm not sure the process.

Hi, I had the same problem, but I finally found my manual. The solution is that you have to use the presser foot for buttonholes but the most important part is that you have to lower the buttonholer lever. It is located right next to the needle to the left. It is a metal lever with a little square white plastic end. You need to pull that down in order the the buttonhole feature to work. My button was too big for the buttonhole presser foot, so I had to use the regular presser foot, but hit the buttonhole lever with my had to make it go up or down.

    Sorry I had a few typos on my last posting. These are the exact instructions from the Manual.

    1. Select one of buttonhole patterns.

    2. Replace the presser foot with the buttonhole foot. (Install presser foot with little red mark towards the front)

    3. Insert the button into the buttonhole foot. (the part located in the back crescent shaped)

    4. Lower the buttonhole lever (to the left of the needle) so that it drops down vertically between the stoppers A and B.

    5. Carefully mark the position of buttonhole on your garment.

    6. Place the fabric under the foot. Pull out the bobbin thread underneath the fabric to a length of about 4 inches to the rear.

    7. Align the buttonhole mark on the fabric with the mark on the buttonhole foot, and then lower the buttonhole foot.

    8. While holding the top thread, start the machine.

    *Sewing will be completed automatically.

    9. When sewing is finished, use a buttonhole opener to open up the frabric in the center of the buttonhole. Be careful not to cut anyt of the seam thread.

    I hope this helps.

Did you pull down the sizing lever on the sewing machine? Look at your manual, it will show you the lever that has to be pulled down for buttonholes. If, you have misplaced your manual, you can go on Singer's website www.singerco.com and under support you can download your FREE manual. Also go on www.youtube.com, put in Singer Confidence sewing machine and you will see some wonderful videos for your machine use. You have a very nice machine, btw..

I have a singer 7422 sewing machine which is made in canada. I want to use it in india. So, what type of step down converter do i need and how much watt.


Hello Gargi Sarkar
The power supply voltage in India is between 220 V and 240 V. Your machine will be ruined if you plug it directly into the power supply in India. There are two options:
1. Use a step down adaptor to 'reduce' the 220 - 240 V to 110V which is what your machine can handle. This may be more practical and economical AND you can use the step-down adaptor for other Canadian electronics.
2. Your sewing machine motor can be changed for a 220 - 240 V motor, but often other parts will need to be changed as well. Also more costly.

I want to do a button hole on my singer sewing machine model 7422 i've got the manual and i've followed what it say's but it only beeps when i pressed the pedal to start sewing i followed the instruction...


I do not have a fancy Brother machine. From what I understand, you just need to do a zig-zag stitch around the "rectangle" that will become the button hole.
You could forego whatever instructions they provide and just set your stitch width as appropriate and then move the stitch type to a thin (close together stitching) zig-zag, just shy of "satin stitch" (which is just sewing back and forth all in the same place, and therefore--useful for embroidery).
Sometimes easy does it can be the ONLY way to get things done. :) Sorry I don't know more about your specific issue but maybe the old school way will help.
