Step
Step 3
(Back bar tack)
1. Turn the pattern selection dial to "c" (same
position as in step 1).
2. Sew 5 to 6 stitches.
3. Stop the machine when the needle is at the right
side of the stitch and then raise the needle from the
material.
Step 4
(Right side)
1. Set the pattern selection dial to "d".
2. Sew the right side until the needle reaches the
stitches sewn in step 1.
■ Securing the Stitching and Cutting the
Buttonhole
To secure the stitching, turn the material
1
90 degrees counterclockwise and sew
straight stitches to the end of the front bar
tack of the buttonhole.
Remove the material from the machine.
2
We recommend that you put pins across
both ends of the buttonhole to prevent the
stitches from being cut.
Cut an opening in the middle of the
3
buttonhole with the seam ripper tool. Be
careful not to cut through any stitches.
CAUTION
When using the seam ripper to open the
buttonhole, do not put your hand or
finger in the path of the ripper. The seam
ripper may slip and you may be injured.

Adjusting buttonholes

If the stitching on the two sides of the buttonhole is not
the same, you can make the following adjustments.
Set the stitch length dial between "F" and
1
"1.5" and sew the buttonhole on a scrap
piece of fabric to observe how the
material is fed.
If the right side of the buttonhole is too
2
open or tight, adjust the feeding of the
material with the stitch length dial.
