It sounds like you may have to do a like more than just turning it to the buttonhole icon. Do you have your manual? If not go to www.sewingmanuals.com and download one for $10 or go to Singerco.com and buy one for $15. I like the download because you have it right away and you print it out and download it, save it on computer so you cannot misplace it. Also you can enlarge the diagrams on the computer, which is great for old eyes like mine. They use paypal so it is a safe site. Good luck. I am answering you for free, there are some answers that charge and maybe they will be better, but I like for everyone to have their manual because usually answers all of your questions not just one. All I have is 50+ years of sewing experience I am not a professional

The 19, 20 and 21 dials on my Bernina 831 sewing machine are stuck. What should i do?


Is your button hole dial activated? Sounds like a dumb question but if the indicator on the buttonhole dial is not at the top it will lock the other dials. The only other thing is that if above is correct, you will have to find a dealer who can carefully oil and get the dials to rotate again. It is v tedious and one has to often disassemble the stitch width, needle position dials and carefully force the buttonhole dial while lubricating the mechanism to get it all working again

I have an Elna 6003 and think it is very difficult to make a button hole. What could I be doing wrong?


some machine have a button hole lever that has to be pulled
down, before they work.
are you using the button hole foot?
if the machine is mechanical, are all the dials set for button hole?
if the machine is electronic are all the settings correct?
also change the needle
if you have the button hole foot on & the button hole lever is down
& a new needle,, the it is possible that the machine needs to be
checked to see if there is something wrong with the buttonhole

Model # 64 60 viking sewing machine looking for manual for sewing leather or canvas which cam to use in it


As to your question about leather, the 6460 has a special stitch for sewing leather. Select Colormatic cam C and install in the cam hole at the back of the machine. To remove/add a cam turn the upper left hand dial on the front of the machine to the small dot. This disengages the cam. Gently remove the cam by pulling straight out from the back of the machine. Install cam C straight in, ever so slightly twisting it back and forth into the hole to find the sweet spot. You'll hear a click when it's all the way in.

To use Viking's leather stitch, turn the upper left dial to the color yellow. (Note: The slash line on the upper left dial is a stop. You can't turn past that point. Go in the other direction to get to the icon or color you want.) Turn the upper right and bottom right dial to yellow also. The upper left dial is what selects the particular stitch on the cam, the leather stitch in this case. The upper right dial selects stitch length, and the lower right dial selects stitch width. You can move the right dials within the color range. Experiment on a scrap of cloth to get the stitch size the way you want it. The leather stitch looks like a straight stitch with a block style edging to the right of the straight stitch. This is supposed to give a stronger stitch to the leather rather than a straight stitch by itself.
If you don't have the manual for your machine: Select which of the eight cams you want to use. All the cams are removed/installed by turning the upper left dial on machine front to the small dot. At the rear of the machine, pull/insert cam straight in or out and twist slightly as you push in or remove to find the sweet spot. Move the dial away from the small dot to lock the cam in.
Turn upper left dial to stitch type you want and match the other dials to that same color. Upper right controls stitch length, lower right controls width. Bobbin tension is controlled by the dial at front left of the machine, above the needle.
Cams A-C are the workhorse cams and the rest are embroidery stitches.Straight stitch, button and stitched zig-zag will work on any cam. These stitches do not rely on matching a color code. To use those three: To select straight stitch, on the upper left dial, choose the icon that looks like a buttonhole with a zig that trails off to the right. Select stitch length on upper right dial and turn the lower right dial to zero, going by number rather than color.
To select stitched zig zag, turn upper left dial to the broken zig zag icon (to the right of the straight stitch icon). Select stitch length and width.
To move the needle to the side for buttonhole stitching or other times when you want the needle off center, turn the upper left dial to the button icon. If stitching a button hole, set stitch length to zero and lower right dial to desired stitch width. Push in the small white button that's beneath the lower right dial in order to prevent the feed dogs from moving the fabric forward. Pushing that button in is also handy for putting cloth under the foot before sewing as it prevents snagging and is used for tacking.

I can't find my manual and I need to know how to do button holes


You could try to locate a manual on the web or try sewing.about.com, there is lots of information on this website.

Sorry, I'm not familiar with this model machine at all.

But if it is an automatic buttonholer model, there is probably a special buttonhole foot in your accessory box? Is it a long white plastic device where you put a button in the back to get the correct lenth. If yes, then put it on the machine and there will also be a lever at the left side of the presser foot that you need to pull down. This buttonhole style sews the bar tack, then one side, the end tack, then the other side and works backwards from the starting point.

Now check your machine dial settings, there is probably a buttonhole icon?

You might be able to muddle through this way?

Need instructions on button holes


Move the width bar to between 4 and 6, the higher number makes a wider buttonhole. Move the length bar to the middle or right of the buttonhole icon. Set the selector dial on #1, snap on the buttonhole foot with a button snugged up in the back slot. Pull down the button stop lever behind the needle threader and make sure it is lower than the edge of the buttonhole foot, and behind the little tab on the left side of the buttonhole foot. Position the needle over where you want the bottom of the buttonhole to be. It will bartack, sew backwards, bar tack and sew forward based on the size of your button. When it is finished it will stop sewing. Turn the stitch selector dial to #2 to reset, then back to #1 to sew the next buttonhole. Practice on scraps until you are happy with the stitch length and width.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the top and bottom. Set the dial to "2" position. Sew 5-6 stitches and raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the right hand side. Set the dial to "3" position. Sew the right side. Raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the top and bottom. Set the dial to "4" position. Sew 5-6 stitches and raise the needle.

Hope that helps...
