Question about White Sewing 1418 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Can anyone tell me how to change the stitches on the White 1418? I need to make button holes and I have no idea how to get it to the proper setting. I think it is number 5, but do I have to try to manually create the button holes? I'm a bit lost and I'm trying to get it figured out and have no manual. The machine was given to me by a friend who only used it once, but I have no idea what happened to the manual. Thanks!
I have a White 1418. Here's how you do it:
1. Attach the buttonhole presser foot (should have come with your machine) and place the fabric underneath.
2. Set the stitch length knob to 0, the zigzag width knob to 5, and set the needle position to center. Sew 3-5 stitches.
3.Change the stitch length to 0.5, the zigzag width to 2, and the needle position to left. Sew to the entire length of your buttonhole.
4.Set stitch length knob to 0, zigzag width knob to 5, and needle position to center and sew about 3-5 stitches
5. Set the stitch length knob to 0.5, zigzag width to 2, and set needle position to the right. Pressing the R button (reverse button), sew up to the top stitches.
6. Remove the fabric and open the button hole with a button hole cutter.
Sounds complicated, but it's really easy. I love this machine, you just have to know how to use it!
