I'm updating this thread to show (link to a video) the buttonholer in action that I attached to my 66 treadle. It makes the nicest buttonholes! I just love watching it go back and forth.

I also bought a zigzagger attachment which is pretty cool too. I probably won't use it that much but the buttonholer I will.

That is so clever, wish they made something like that for my straight stitch machine

Flipping beautiful @kowgiirl.up .  I've always had a soft spot for treadles after learning on one at school, everybody else wanted the new electric machines

It is pretty cool. I bet the folks that used them back in the day would’ve loved to have one of these.

Next time I have the Zigzagger on I will do a short video to post.

In this video I have my zigzagger attached along with the Edge Guide

I will tell you this, it’s pretty hard to hole a phone to record, treadle and guide the fabric properly.. It ain’t pretty but I got it done  :thumb:

I'm still trying to get my head around the fact that it has to move all the fabric rather than just the needle.

I'm hitting on this topic again for anyone that might be interested in trying the buttonholer on a treadle.

I have made several buttonholes now and all of them are topnotch (in my book anyway). The only issue I have, and I feel it's operator error, is I don't have the clearance under the foot like I think I should have. After I get the next two projects done, I plan on disassembling the buttonholer to see if maybe something is bent, or I am missing something on the installation. At any rate, I just LOVE buttonholes now!
