    Ah, I wish I could come! You have a real treasure trove. And I've never been to South Dakota. What a good plan to have a machine shed - I've just taken over the house.

    Cathy I am so impressed by your collection. If you ever need something picked up in central Minnesota just let me know.
    This early winter weather has slowed my travels a bit.

    Thanks HelenAnn

    Most of my siblings still live on the north side of the Twin Cities (White Bear Lake/Hugo) and that is where I grew up. DH and I like to drive up through Mankato on our way, but the winter weather usually keeps us much closer to home.

    Next summer when my Machine Shed is all set up and things are more organized, you are more than welcome to come visit and see all my "stuff" in person. Of course, that goes for anyone traveling through. Eventually I want to set up a traveling collection and go to some of the TOGA events. Both DH and I enjoy the machines, so it's something fun we plan on doing together.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    wanted to add - anyone wanting to come see the vintage collection - if they are interested, they can also have a turn on the HQ long arm. Since it's a 12' frame, the vast majority of time there is about 3' of free space on the end to play with.

    I never thought I'd say this, but now I almost want to visit South Dakota. Cathy, you have an incredible collection and generous soul.

    Buttonholer for Kenmore 117-959

    I have my mother's Kenmore 117-959 machine with the Kenmore Buttonholer attachment; neither of us used it. Decades later in trying to revive this machine I thought she had bought or been sold one that was not correct for her machine. The instruction booklet is woefully lacking & confusing.

    You have to completely remove the round presser foot screw clamp adapter to be able to attach the buttonholer. The booklet does not make that clear. It is held on by a small screw to the right. There were 4 different needle bars apparently. The 117-959 has the Round bar. With the clamping screw removed, you slide the buttonholer from the back & it goes around the bar, with an arm going onto the needle bar.

    The Kenmore Buttonholer works on that machine. I believe as Macybaby said it will work on all Kenmore machines of that era IF you know how to deal with the presser bar clamping system.

    I know I am replying to an Old post. I am hoping this information will help someone who picks up one of these wonderful machines, &/or Buttonholers. So glad for sites like this where information can be shared & kept for future reference.
