Needle does not reach bobbin to to pull bobbin thread on surface


Sewing machine needles are specific to each model. If the needles are not for your model they could be too short or too thick so that they don't sit in the shank correctly. Check your user manual or Mr Google could help.

How to use the buttonhole attachment


You haven't listed the model of your machine so its hard to give you step by step instructions as there is variations in how buttonholes are done. Some machines have a 4 step sequence on a knob, it may be colour coded with a little buttonhole symbol.

Other computerised machines you just select the buttonhole style and pull down a lever behind the needle bar which lines up with the special buttonhole foot to trigger the return stitching down the buttonhole side.

Have a look in your accessories and see if you have a buttonhole foot like this
tally_girl_76.jpg If so, remove the current pressure foot and put this on, clip it onto the little metal bar you see near the front of the foot. Now put your button into the back ratchet bit of the foot, you pull it out, place the button in there and close it up firmly to hold the button in place. This helps to give you the right length buttonhole.

Now you need to start the buttonhole stitching sequence and sorry, but I don't know what your machine's is, you really need to check the manual for this bit. It may be a 1,2,3,4 sequence on a dial and probably stitch length set to 0.5 so its a closed up satin stitch.

But you stitch the butttonhole in the folowing sequence:
near bar tack, reverse down right hand long side, far bar tack, then back up left hand long side, then a couple of stitches in place to finish off.

The buttonhole foot will sit firmly on your fabric and the inner part of it will move backwards as the machine stitches, then comes back to the front again.

The computerised machines will have a little lever you pull down and these will trigger on a lug on the buttonhole foot to start the reverse stitching at the right length buttonhole. Sometimes they will stitch both long sides in the same direction too, so sequence is near bar tack, down right hand side, far bartack, then it will stitch back to front in little straight stitches, then do the left hand long side to the back and finish off.

On early machines, you actually set the stitch length to 0.5, and stitch width to 2 for sides and 4 for bartacks and made the buttonhole yourself by stitching down one long side, leaving the needle in the fabric and pivoting the work around, then stitching the bartack, then the other long side, then final bartack all manually. It can be done but obviously the new programmed ones are far easier and give consistently similar buttonholes on a garment.

ALWAYS, interface the fabric to be buttonholed, you'll never get a good practice buttonhole without interfacing in a sandwich between two layers of fabric so no point practicing without it.

And, never cut your buttonhole with the seam ripper unless you pin across the two ends first to make sure you don't have a woopsy moment and rip through the end bartack. I use a buttonhole knife and block of wood to cut and it ensures you never have a cutting disaster.

I also pull the thread tails through to the underside with a needle afterwards, tie them off and add a dab of fray stopper to make sure the buttonhole never unravels, then trim the ends off close.

I hope this helps you but obviously getting the manual to your machine would be a big help too.

I have a old Elna machine. The air electronic SU 390 B. I have lost the manual and am trying to do buttonholes on a dress. I have forgotten the sequence of nob adjustments to complete the process.


Is this the duplex model with the base that fits into a sewing cabinet?

My Elna booklet lists a SP "air electronic" duplex (CL.39), if so, then it would be same stitches as the 38, yellow front panel, 7 built in stitches and automatic knob with blue markings for buttonholing.

Here is the SU manual images for buttonholing, should be exactly the same for the SP.

tally_girl_4.jpg Instructions are:
use buttonhole foot. turn the 3 dials to buttonhole marked in blue (stitch selection, width and length).
Mark length of buttonhol on the material. Place work under foot with the mark in the middile fo the foot, the start being directly below the needle. sew the first side, raise the needle. Turn stitch width dial to 2, blue. Sew a few stitches for bartack. Raise the needle.
Turn stitch width dial to 3 blue. sew the second side. stop just short of the first side. Raise the needle.
turn the stitch width dial to 4 blue. sew a few stitches for bartack. Raise the needle.
Turn stitch width dial to "fastening off stitch" blue dot. Sew a few stitches, holding back the material by hand. Raise needle, lift pressure foot and remove work, triming off threads.
Open the buttonhole with your seam ripper (put a pin across the end to avoid any nasties).

Buttonhole


When a machine does an "automatic buttonhole the feed does not move for a few stitches and maay jam if there are too many stitches made in this position. Is it an automatic buttonhole or can you choose how many stitches for your bartack? You ask about 0.5 well that is halfway between 0 and 1 on the stitchlength and this is indeed the recommended setting for buttonholes. If you are doing a manual buttonhole set your machine to this for the sides and zero for the bartacks but you only need about 6-10 stitches on the bartack. Fininsh it off securely by setting to straight stitch and stitch length zero for about 4 stitches to lock the thread in.
