Look, look, everyone!
Someone (...not me - I am hanging on to mine - all 3 of 'em...!) is selling a Greist buttonholer attachment, complete with the eyelet cam!!

I don't know... I thought someone may want to buy it? Hence placing it here??
If wrong please remove and replace.

It's sometimes hard to resist things!
I kept forgetting I was wanting to search for a buttonholer with more templates so was glad just for the reminder.

I was amazed to spot the Vintage Ruby Automatic Zig-zagger Attachment, on the same page. I have one of those. I paid £4 for it and it worked fantastically well. The Ebay price was £19.99. Admittedly it does have the box. Mine never did.

Good find, Madame Cholet! I love using my buttonhole attachments (I have a cream Singer one on my 27k treadle, permanently), but I do like to use the Greist template ones too. The eyelet template is a definite bonus. I think one of mine has one, but not needed to do eyelets yet. 
Enjoy using it Cheesecake!
