Question about Singer 2639
I have used the buttonholer on my Singer 2639 with success--once. This time it simply keeps sewing straight along. It does not form a buttonhole. I was using a test scrap, thank goodness. I am also having problems with the thread tension, but at the moment I want to make a d*mn buttonhole.
Also make sure that you pulled the buttonholer lever down and pushed it back (it's on the left side of the presser foot) ... the machine won't make the forward and backward motions to form the buttonhole without it.

Set you machine for "zigzag" then: try your buttonholer again.
Also; the thread tension can be adjusted by a small screw in the side of the bobbin for the bottom loop of the stich or, the tensioner on the side of the machine head for the top loop
