    Miriam, you are ready for a really big shop that you can work in

    Can anyone tell me is this "Famous" buttonhole worker fits all singers, or just the ones with low shank? It does not say any where in the manuel that came with it. It just says that the buttonhole worker is a modle "CC" for Singer sewing machines.

    Kat, I would think just the low shank Singers, but am not sure...can you get us a better pic of the part that attaches?

    NOPE! no big shop - I had one once - I had a business making tents. Before I knew it that big old 30 X 50 ft pole barn was full of old junk and my lofting space kept shrinking - I'm still getting rid of that junk - stuff expands to fill the available space. Right now I have too many machines and cabinets. Sheesh. I've been fixing up all I can without doing wiring - maybe Joe can show up when you are here Glenn - we could re-wire 40 motors or so - do a marathon. If we get lucky Rain could show up and we could re-wire the Singer 15s with the potted motors. We'd have to to that in the 'show' room... after we clear out all the cabinets. The good thing about all these machines is that I am learning a LOT. I'm getting more confident in what I can do. But then again there is a lot to learn. I love it!!!

    I'm thinking of making a cardboard template of some type- maybe an outline? to use to quickly sort feet. As I clean up my sewing room, I keep finding strays....Laura

    Sorry I can't. DD just left with her camera. She was nice enough to take some pictures for me but the three I posted are all I have.

    Yes that is a low shank only button holer. You better read that manual so you can figure out how to make it work. My mom had one for years and nobody ever saw it until recently - I think she kept it hidden away so nobody would take it apart (blush) The button holers that fit a slant shank have 'SLANT' stamped on the top of the piece that goes on the post. The professional button holer will have 'STRAIGHT' on the short shank button holer. There are a few button holers to fit odd shafts but the part that attaches to the shaft is odd shaped too. IS THIS CLEAR????????
