I have an older machine without an automatic buttonhole feature. This video was of no help to me.

I hate making buttonholes even after 40 years but this video has shown a few things I have been doing wrong. It has some good pointers on making the buttonholes turn out better. This is great for a beginner to watch before they start making one. It also has a tutorial too to look over. I think this video may have given me the confidence to try them again.

Great job! Super useful video!
