Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines
All knobs and upper tension are set to buttonhole specs. What is the 4 step procedure to make the buttonholes?
You start with the broad zig zag stitch bar across the top
then you go down the left side using a smaller zig zag stitch
then you make the the broad zig zag stitch at the bottom
then you make the smaller zig zag stitch on the right side
all the way to the top broad zig zag stitch & your done
the right side zig zag does not go beyond the top broad zig zag

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.

SOURCE: machine made buttonholes.
Hi - we both worked for Pfaff for years and would love to help. Can you provide specific on the problems you are experiencing, i.e. is the fabric bunching, the beginning and end not lining up, more dense on one side than the other... just as much detail as you can. We'll do our best to help you figure out how to get your perfect buttonholes. Kim & Linnette

If everything appears to be working correctly for the first side and stops and bunches up when it should reverse - Make sure you have pulled down the stopper arm (this is not clear in the manual) when the button hole foot contacts the stopper arm gently push the foot against the stopper arm and the direction will reverse and finish the button hole. **Stopper arm pulls down from above - Check the pictures in you manual carefully.**

Put on the C foot. Select the buttonhole stitch. The machine will start sewing in the bottom left corner of the the buttonhole. Sew the length that you need, press and release the reverse button and sew the right side of the buttonhole. When you get back to the bottom, press and release the reverse button again and the buttonhole will be finished and the thread will tie off and the machine will stop. If the buttonhole is what you want, press and release the Stop button and the machine will repeat this buttonhole as many times as you need until the machine is turned off or the Stop is pressed again. When repeating, you need not press the reverse. Just press down on the foot control and continue until the machine stops by itself.
If you don't like the first one, just sew another one using the reverse button to set the ends.

I've been looking too and I found here http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl?t=18328that you need to put the bar behind the needle threader down. I think they call it a button hole stop? I don't know, but it worked. I didn't even know it existed. But it solved my problem. On my Kenmore it looks like a black lever and you pull it down. It tells the button-holer that you are at the end of the hole and it needs to backup. nifty, kind of.
