Have you ever needed to do a button hole for a BIG button …..for a winter coat maybe? Well then you will probably know that it is not possible to fit those extra large buttons into the Buttonhole foot R. Of course, you can STILL do a button hole! You need to use the memorized button hole (MEM) rather than the AUTO buttonhole program on your Janome machine.
Most Janome models have a one step button hole program which is a great feature with the Buttonhole foot which allows you to pop the button into the foot and sew precisely stitched and sized button holes for that particular button size.
The Janome instruction manual which comes with our various machine models gives good instructions of how to use the various button hole programs on each model. Some have 1 or maybe 2 different button hole options, others have upwards of a dozen or more….depending on the machine model.
But what happens when you want to do button holes larger than 1 inch?
The LARGE BUTTON HOLE FOOT was introduced for use on the Janome Mc15000 but since it was launched there are now also other models which are compatible with this accessory foot: Janome Skyline S7 and Janome MC9400. Please ask at your Local Janome Dealer for this foot and if it is compatible with your specific model.
This foot will make button holes for buttons from 1 inch to 2 inches in diameter.
We think this is a most handy tool for garment sewers to have in their tool belts. See your local authorized Janome Dealer today to ask about this Large Button hole foot.
