It will make one side of the buttonhole. When the suto reverse button is pushed, it keeps straight stitching past the top of the buttonhole, gathering the fabric as the straight stitches grow shorter. I have cleaned the machine, chnaged the needle, threaded the bobbin pigtail, and cleaned the lens on the foot. Any suggestions before I take it to the dealer for recalibration?

Yes, also check the sensor portion that is actually on your sewing

machine. It's up underneath and is what reads the prism on the foot. If

you have the foot on the machine and then look straight up above the

foot's prism you'll see it.

Kari didn't mention that it's practically impossible to get your head down and look up. You can tip the Bernina back just a little bit and that helps but if you can, do get somebody to be on the other side just for safety. Berninas do not take kindly to being dropped on the head. Alternatively, I keep a tiny purse mirror in the drawer beside my sm so I can see UP. Dust and fluff can and will accumulate there too. Polly
