Unfortunately a paysite, although you can download rather cheaply. No affiliation

SOURCE: Bernina Activa 131: buttonhole problem

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.

How do I make a button hole with my Bernina Activa 140?


If you go to http://www.bernina.com.au/webautor-data/888/0305295204_0303_a135-a145_EN.pdf you can download a manual for the Activa 145, I suspect that the instructions would be very similar for buttonholing.

I can''t remember the steps to make a button hole using my Bernina patchwork 140. I have the # 3 foot. What button do I push to turn the corner manually?


you can download a manual for the Activa 145 here, buttonholing steps would probably be very similar for your model
http://www.bernina.com.au/webautor-data/888/0305295204_0303_a135-a145_EN.pdf

It says you sew one bar, then press the reverse button and the automatic function then sews the bar tacs, other side, bar tack and finishes.

There is also a tension adjustment on teh bobbin. It's just a little screw. Turn it about 1/4 to 1/2 turn and try again. Adjust as needed a little at a time.

Operating manual


Unfortunately this is a purchase site. The closest I could get would be for an Activa 220 230 240 . You can download the manual.
Check the picture on no. 7 and see if this isn't your machine.
