I am a firm believer in making the most of all the features of your sewing and or sewing/embroidery machine. I feel badly when customers in class say they have been intimidated by any of the features they have paid hard earned money to have available to them. One of the most consistent features customers seem most intimidated by is the buttonhole feature. I have had many people tell me they didn’t want to practice the buttonhole during their machine class because they didn’t want to use it: it just never turned out for them in the past. There was always such surprise and new found confidence when they decided to give it a go and they were successful! I am all for not using a feature simply because it’s not needed at the time, but I hope there are no features on your machine which you don’t use because you don’t have confidence that you will be successful using it! Here are a few tips that might help you if buttonholes are something you have been avoiding due to “buttonhole intimidation”.
I would encourage you to practice on a project that uses many buttonholes, if possible. Maybe a new shower curtain or a throw pillow that closes using buttons! If, by using your manual for help, you are still not comfortable with this feature, go to https://sewingmastery.com/ and check out the process on your machine!
