How do you use the sliding button hole attatchment
attach the sliding foot by clipping off the current one, placing the sliding food onto the needle plate, lining up the clip with the attchment point and lowering the pressure foot down onto it so it clicks in.
Now, does your machine have a little lever device to the left and just behind the pressure foot, have a look for it. If yes, then pull it down, this is the buttonholing trigger and it connects with the sliding foot to trigger the reverse and stitching of the second side.
Program the machine for button holing, this might be pushing in a numbered code, on my 6500 there are five buttonholes and they each have a code that I enter.
Place your fabric test sample under the pressure foot and put the button into the back of the pressure foot, there is a little ratchet device that closes up holding the button firmly to get the right dimensions.
I always do at least 2 test buttonholes using same fabric, usually 2 layers with interfacing between.
Start the buttonholing sequence by pressing on your machines foot control, it should sew backwards away from you down the first side of the buttonhole, and the trigger should connect with a bit on the slide foot triggering the machine to stop, sew the bar tack, and then reverse and sew the otherside and final bar tack.
That's how it goes on my 6500, I hope this applies to your MC10000 too, it should be very similar. Your machine probably has at least 3 or 4 different types of buttonholes it can do. If you don't have a manual for it, it probably is worth sources one as these machines have lots of features to use.
