What a wonderful tool!!! We were sewing some buttons on in mass, and have been use to hand sewing on buttons for years.
I purchased this foot a few weeks ago, and it is the best purchases for us that I have made. With the foot holding down the button, place the spoke between the button holes, start the peddle, and wala!!!! It is done!!! The fastest, easier button sewed on that we have ever done, and my DD can do it!!! Wish I had a Bernina and this foot (19 for my SM) years ago.

Interesting. I bought this foot a few years ago and hate it. I don't like that spoke on it. I use my #20 foot instead and get great results. Glad you like it, though.

I have the button foot for my Elna 7200 and love it - it's fast and results in consistantly perfectly sewn buttons although I have to admit it took a little practice to perfect the technique.

I, too love this foot, although I have the #18 - the older one without the grip on the bottom. I was so glad when Bernina came out with this foot with the spoke! I love having a shank without fooling around with a toothpick or two (or something else) to get the right size shank. With this foot you can adjust the spoke to have more or less shank. I think it is wonderful as it is so easy! I have been sewing buttons on with my Berninas since the 70's and I think this foot is worth twice its cost!

I use this foot all the time too. And, Donna H, you can remove the little arm with the spoke on it if you would like to. I needed to replace mine when I broke the spoke (don't ask) and it comes right off with a bit of tugging.

PattiB Thanks. I'll go give it a tug and see if it comes off!
