1  Texas / Texas: Central / moving to austin on: August 06, 2008 11:50:32 AM

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / how do you make a buttonhole with a bottonhole foot? on: June 06, 2008 05:04:05 PM
i have one of those buttonhole foots that you put the button in to determine the length of the hole. but i cant figure out where to put the button in the foot or which side of the foot faces me?
i havent really made a button before but i have a viking 183 so i assume it pretty much does all of the work, i just cant figure out how to use the foot.
please help!!!!
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / viking 183- computerized-- SUPER BIG QUESTION+++++ on: May 17, 2008 04:23:05 PM
ok I got this computerized emerald 183
and I get how to do everything so far except

***   how do you put the presser foot up ??   ***

I cant figure out how to get the fabric underneath the foot, its always in sewing position like there is already fabric underneath the needle.
this sucks.
please help if you know or if you have a different computerized sewing maching with some secret or painfully obvious way to raise the presser foot, im sure its right in front of my face.

So i'm gonna invest in an Emerald 183. It has like 83 different stitches and pretty much i love it. Question though---
Ive never purchased a viking, in fact i've only ever had a ricaar.
so anybody think its a good choice? it costs 800 bucks but i think i can pull it together.
and opinions?Huh
