at this level. We're going to sing an AA vowel, and theAA vowel scale is going to go like this. Layâ€¦ Ahhhâ€¦ So AA and Ah, and we're going to actuallyslowly go through this to start to strength train the voice, here we go. Ladies, you'll do this up the octaveâ€¦ Layâ€¦

Bernina 550 46 Manual Buttonholes
Manual buttonholes would be done if you everneed a buttonhole that is longer than your foot 3A will allow you to do. So this footis an option for you, foot number 3. Foot number 3 has two grooves underneath that isgoing to keep the satin stitching for both sides of the buttonhole guided nice and straight. I have done some extreme buttonholes in mylife. They were quite long and they needed to be a protective stitching along a verybig opening. So first thing I did was I went ahead and marked my beginning and ending points,because once we do this the machine is not going to know to start or end, so everythingis manual. This is also a great way if you
need to to repair a buttonhole. Maybe justpart of the seam has come out or part of the stitching and you can go in and get to theright step and fix it yourself. So the first thing we are going to do is setthe needle to start at the top or first line of the buttonhole, so as you stitch, it isgoing to start with the first column down on the lefthand side. You are going to watchas you can see down and through the machine where the second line is. You will need tomanually stop sewing when you get there and to tell the machine that's where our turnaroundpoint is. Touch the reverse button once. We're actually going to be touching this a totalof 3 times. That was the first time.
The next step is sewing back to the beginningwith a straight line. You also will need to stop it when it gets back to the beginning.This always sneaks up on me, so I always kind of slow down and then if you actually stopjust a hair before the first stitch you took, that's great. Touch the reverse button again.This will do the tack at the top and start down the righthand side as we go. Once we'redown to the line again, you need to tell the machine, this is our time to put the tackat the bottom. The tack at the bottom will also include the final locking stitches, sowe can cut nice and close to the thread. That we did. So that's how you do a manual buttonhole.
How To Use A Ruffler Foot
Hey Everyone, this is Sarah with sewingpartsonline . I'm going to show you how to use and install the Ruffler Foot as well as some of the features it has to offer. So, this is the ruffler foot and it looks a little crazy, but it is also very cool. What it does is basically pleat your fabric and it gives you three different options forthe size of pleat you want.
it also does a straight stitch if you want that too. And what it is going to do it is pulls the fabric through these grooves any uses this to push it under and pleat it. So, to install it we're going to put this right here onto the needle holder
and this opening onto the shank screw. so first let's take off the foot you already have on, including the shank. And first, I like to wiggle it on the needle holder. Once you have it one there, go a head and slide it onto the screw. Make sure to get it on nice and tight because this does have a lot of movement to it.
And there you go, installed. So, this is kind of like the settings tab for the Ruffler Tab. We have a star, a twelve, a six, and a one. What this means is how many stitches are in betweeneach pleat. This is twelve stitches between each pleat, this is six stitches between each pleat, an this one is a pleat every single stitch.
More ruffles. Less ruffles. And the star is a straight stitch. No ruffles at all. If you want to adjust this even further, you can adjust the stitch length. so if i had a longer stitch length on a one versus a shorter stitch length on a one the pleats would be
a different size. If i have a a twelve and my straight stitch is at maybe a two point five they're going to be closer together thanat a five point zero stitch length. So, this is where you can further adjust your settings for your ruffler foot. So, now that we have it installed
