Vintage Y S Star Buttonhole Attachment

£12.99

Product description

Buttonhole maker attachment for vintage sewing machines made by Y. S. Star


A great attachment to turn your straight stitch only vintage Singer or Jones into a lean mean buttonhole making machine, or just as good if you have a later straight and zigzag stitch heavy duty survivor of the 60s and 70s. The attachment is in excellent condition and in full working order.

The photo graphs show the buttonholer attached to a hand crank vintage Singer straight stitch only sewing machine and the buttonholes that were sewn on it.

Designed for low shank domestic sewing machines.
Has a feed dog blanking plate for machines which do not have the facility to drop the feed dog teeth.
Comes complete with instructions and a variety of attachment screws to fit different machines.
The spacing of the stitches can be altered to be closer together or further apart.
The length of the buttonhole can be varied.
You cannot by altering the stitch length on your machine alter the depth of the stitches surrounding the buttonhole.


This Y. S. Star make of buttonholer is still manufactured but in a design to fit industrial machines which are generally straight stitch only.
