I had to go to visit the sewing machine shop to get a refresher course on using the buttonhole function on my sewing machine. It is a NECCHI--a wonderful machine. Once I was reminded how to use it the the buttonholer just goes ahead and makes perfect buttonholes. EASY, no kidding!
Before my 40 year old Singer sewing machine went to stitch heaven, I was thinking about buying a serger. I thought they were complicated and temperamental after trying one out. My NECCHI 4825 has ability to do overlock stitches and it has a serger setting. It doesn't have all the threads and complicated threading that I've seen on regular serger machines. I'm not sure how it works, but it really works well.
I started a knit dress. Knits are something I have avoided in the past, but this new machine is handling the job like a pro.
I do love my new sewing machine.
