Yes frustrating issue this one. I discovered that you need to pull down the retractable button hole guide found behind the needle threader (not visible when you are sitting at the machine).

Hope this helps, happy sewing!!!

I am assuming that you have marked where you want the button hole to be. Here is the link to the manual for the 5050.

Make sure the plug from the buttonhole foot is going all the way in when you insert it. If that doesnt correct it, then the foot may be bad.

Have Pfaff 7570. Can I sew 4 holed button?


If it is a flat button that will fit under the presser foot, of course you can stitch it down with your sewing machine. (I like to use gluestick from the school supply bin to stick the button to the fabric.) Be sure to deactivate the feed dogs while you are sewing on buttons.

You'll just need to stitch two button holes and then rotate the fabric & button and stitch the other two holes.

Singer Simple 3116 only sews backward.Looking for answer I saw earlier that involved several steps including buttonholer


You are stuck in buttonhole. The selector knob does not spin round and around. It is moved from Stitch 1 to stitch 14 and back. Try selecting buttonhole and then running the knob in the other direction to straight stitch. If that does not work, (1) drop the lever that senses the button hole attachment, (2) sew a few stitches backward, (3) push the button hole lever rearward, once, hard, (4) rotate the stitch selector to straight stitch.

Bernina buttonhole 730


Use your ruler and measure your button. Then transfer those measurements to your garment.
Use chalk to mark the center cut line of your button hole. Mark the end or stop point of the button hole per the measurement.
Practice on a scrap of the same fabric before you begin on your garment.
Set your machine the satin stitch zig zag at a fairly narrow width.
Begin satin on one side of the center line of the mark. Slowly stitch down that side until you get to the end. STOP. Widen your satin stitch to the max. sew about 1/8" and stop with the needle down on the opposite side to your first line of stitching. Turn the fabric, narrow the stitch to match original satin stitch. Sew slowly down the other side of the center mark. STOP, lengthen the stitch, sew 1/8" then do a couple back stitches.

That's one way. Another older way is to sew 2 or tree straight stitch lines around the center line. Remove then use a hand rendered button hole stitch after you cut the hole.

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.
