SOURCE: Not sure how to use the buttonhole foot J that

The buttonhole foot slides open so that you may insert the button which you are making a button hole for so that it may be sized correctly.

Slide open the foot, place the buttin on the spot and slide it closed.

Turn the pattern selector off and back on to the buttonhole pattern to reset. (Do this each time you make a buttonhole to reset)

Pull down the buttonhole lever located up and to the left of the needle bar. Pull it ALL THE WAY DOWN so that it will be tripped by the buttonhole foot as it moves.

Set the stitch width to about 4 or 4.5.

Set the stitch length to a very tight stitch (but usually slightly higher than the recommended marking)

Set the upper tension on 3.

Use an appropriate stabilizer. This is the key to a good buttonhole.

Lower the foot on the fabric, ensuring that the foot goes down without springing forward or back.

Make a few practice buttonholes, adjusting the width and length untill you get what you are looking for.

How do you use the buttonhole foot on a babylock companion 1550


1.Mark position and length of buttonhole on fabric.
2.Set button on the base and slide base forward to secure button.
* If button does not fit on the base, adjust slide on base to diameter of button plus thickness of button.
a= Length of button + thickness
3.Pass upper thread through the hole of buttonhole foot and attach buttonhole foot to machine.
Bring upper and bobbin threads to the left under foot.
4.Position fabric under presser foot so that the center line mark is in the center of the needle opening in the buttonhole foot. With the main part of the foot pushed to the back, lower the presser foot lever.
5.Lower the buttonhole foot lever so it is positioned behind the raised finger on the foot (see step 5 illustration). a
Note:Machine will not start to sew if buttonhole lever is not lowered properly or buttonhole foot is not positioned correctly.
Note:If machine does not reset for second buttonhole, be sure the presser foot raised finger is pressed against the lever.
6.Hold upper thread lightly and start the machine.

My Janome Memory Craft 5700 using the R buttonhole foot will only do a striaght line will not turn at top for bartack any suggestios?


Go to page 25 in your 5700 manual and read from the beginning about how to set the buttonhole foot up. Make sure you have followed all steps. There is a lever on the button hole foot that you pull down. If you have done everything correctly, then you may need to call a service tech at a sewing store and have it serviced. You can get a copy of the manual from Janome's website.
Hope you find the answer.

Unable to make buttonhole


did you put the buttonhole foot on?
did you put the button in the buttonhole foot?
did you pull down the buttonhole lever to the left of the needle?
did you choose the buttonhole program you want?
if you answered yes, to all these questions then it would be a good idea to have the machine checked to see why it won't make a button hole

Don't know how to do button holes


Slide the back of the buttonhole foot "R" open, place your button in the cradle and slide the fott together so it holds the button.
Snap on the buttonhole foot on the machine. Pull down the buttonhole lever. It has a small white plastic paddle on the end and is located up and to the left of the needle bar. Pull the lever all the way down. Turn the pattern selector to Buttonhole. Place the tension on 3. Place the stitch width control on 5 or 6. Place the stitch length control a little below 1. Make sure that you have some stabilizer between the layers of fabric. Use freezer paper in a pinch. Lower the foot on your fabric making sure that the foot is not pulled forward or backward. Make a test buttonhole. AFTER EACH BUTTONHOLE YOU MUST TURN THE PATTERN SELECTOR OFF BUTTONHOLE AND BACK ON IN ORDER TO RESET THE MECHANISM. Make several test buttonholes, adjusting the width and length if needed.

How to sew buttonholes


First thing you'll need to do is switch the presser foot.

Your machine should have come with a specific button hole foot.

(might have an R on the bottom)


To snap off:

Raise the needle and presser foot.

Press the red button on the back of the foot holder
and the foot will drop.

To snap on:

Place the presser foot so the pin on the foot lies just

under the groove of the foot holder.
Lower the foot holder to lock the foot in place.

Select which buttonhole style you would like to stitch.
This can be done by selecting a mode (buttonholes are 06-08)
and then adjusting to the desired length and width.

After you do this, lower the presser foot and hold the foot pedal down.
The machine will automatically sew the buttonhole and stop when it is finished

All you'll need to do is just cut the thread after.

Hope you found this information helpful.

I cant get the machine to sew a buttonhole.


I am not familiar with your machine, but some buttonhole attachments require a lever be lowered and inserted into a tab.

Review your manual to see if a step was overlooked.

Machine will not complete a buttonhole, keeps showing error code 6L. No error code listed in manual. Machine will only do first half of buttonhole and then shows code and stops.


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.
