Question about Singer 7422
Hello, I cannot find my instruction manual for my Singer Advance 7422. I have tried everything that makes sense for the buttonhole but nothing works and the machine just keeps beeping at me. If anyone would be so gracious as to send the instructions from thier manual just for making a buttonhole I would greatly appreciate it. I have tried to order a new manual from Singer and I am not able to at this time. I have made clothes for my month old and all I have left to do it put the buttons on. :) Thank you to anyone who is willing to take the time to type out these instructions or who can explain them to me so that I can use my sewing machine. Thanks a bunch. - Amanda firstname.lastname@example.org
These are the exact instructions from the Manual.
1. Select one of buttonhole patterns.
2. Replace the presser foot with the buttonhole foot. (Install presser foot with little red mark towards the front)
3. Insert the button into the buttonhole foot. (the part located in the back crescent shaped)
4. Lower the buttonhole lever (to the left of the needle) so that it drops down vertically between the stoppers A and B.
5. Carefully mark the position of buttonhole on your garment.
6. Place the fabric under the foot. Pull out the bobbin thread underneath the fabric to a length of about 4 inches to the rear.
7. Align the buttonhole mark on the fabric with the mark on the buttonhole foot, and then lower the buttonhole foot.
8. While holding the top thread, start the machine.
*Sewing will be completed automatically.
9. When sewing is finished, use a buttonhole opener to open up the frabric in the center of the buttonhole. Be careful not to cut anyt of the seam thread.
I hope this helps.

Hi Amanda, if you look up behind the presser foot, there is a white tab. pull it down. It's for buttonhole. The tab can be tapped as you sew to change the direction of the stitching. I am still trying to get the hang of it. When I start to sew I tap it back, when I reached the length I wanted I tapped it forward. It will take some practice. Good Luck. Lindy

You can use the regular plate and you are correct in that it should make the button hole automatically. If the material does not move, the pessure on the pressure foot is not enough.
You can try the following:
First make sure you select a button hole patern.
You can also place a piece of stitch and tear paper underneath the material to help with the movement. If you dont have any, try normal tissue paper.
Hope this help you
Cheerup and be Happy Always
