Question about Bernina Activa 130
I recently bought a used Bernina Activa 131, and I'm having a problem making buttonholes. I was practicing making a manual buttonhole and followed the directions in the manual and was rather pleased with the result and decided to keep practicing. Unfortunately my machine will not make another one. I selected the buttonhole function. I made the first forward step, stopped and pushed the auto recers button but nothing happens the machine continues moving forwaard and the screen keeps showing the first forward stitch no matter how many times I push the auto recerse button. I tried making the automatic buttonholes and the same thing happens. I cleared it and turned it off and tried again, but it will only go forward. I'm so hoping someone will help me fix this.
There are TWO buttons on the machine that have the little u-turn on them. Look for the other one. That is the one that makes the second half of the buttonhole. Look in the owner's manual, it may tell you where it is on your machine. I spent a long time swearing at my machine before I figured out that the reverse is not the only button with the u-turn arrow. The manual is not clear on this. Why they use the same symbol twice is beyond me. Mine is on the front of the machine, down by the needle. Hope this helps.
