Button sewing foot
Select stitch: C
Stitch length: 0
Install the darning plate (1).
Position the work under the foot. Place the button on the
marked position, lower the foot. Turn the handwheel to check
that the needle goes cleanly into the left and right holes of the
button (adjust the stitch width according to the button by
turning the stitch selector dial to the appropriate stitch width),
and slowly sew on the button with about 10 stitches (2).
It is recommended to take a few locking stitches at the
beginning and end of each button. To do this - set the select
stitch A and take a few stationary stitches on one side of the
button. Sew on the button as described and repeat the locking
stitch on the other side of the button.
If a shank is required, place a darning needle on top of the
button and sew (3). For buttons with 4 holes, sew through the
front two holes first (2), push work forward and then sew
through the back two holes as described (3).
