@badgermat, you may want to check if you need an adapter though. I know you’d need an adapter when you want to use the buttonholer on a Bernina (Bernina to low shank adapter) not sure about Bernette. As Roget said, the template creates the teardrop/keyhole for you, all you to is to admire this little marvel of mechanical engineering.

Oh wisdom, you always arrive just a moment too late :)

As it goes, I've already thrown caution to the wind and purchased the Greist. If my optimism turns out to be misplaced, well that's another life lesson that I really should have learned over the last five decades.

I'll get a scan (or photos) of my manual tomorrow when I go to the shop.
