I am extremely grouchy at the moment. Baby Bernina has let me down. When I picked her up, the dealer told me how much I was going to love the buttonhole feature. Well, ha-ha joke was on her – I cannot remember the last time I used a machine to make a buttonhole.
However, the project I am currently working on has two interior buttonholes that will not show, and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use the fabulous buttonhole option on my lovely machine.
|Trusty Bound Buttonholes|
Turns out, the joke is on me, because my machine will NOT make an automatic buttonhole. I have watched online tutorials and read the instructions, but no matter what I do, that silly little “A” does not appear on the screen after I stop and press the Quick Reverse Button - the machine cannot seem get past the reverse straight stitch to make the second leg of the buttonhole.
I turned it off and back on, hoping for the best. It still will not work properly.
I am so frustrated that I just used the Quick Reverse Button each time I came to the end to complete the buttonholes. It works, but so much for ease of use and consistency with the automatic buttonhole attachment. I would scrap the whole foot, but no other option was included.
This is why I do not trust machine made buttonholes.
Has anyone else come across this issue? I decided to step away from the machine before I do something that I will regret, like slap her silly.
I really do not enjoy when machines do not do what they are supposed to do. Aargh!!
Have you ever had one of those weeks? I would really like to finish the dress, but I am afraid to touch anything else at this point.
