After you have placed your button on the fabric to be sewn how do you secure it, so it does not move until you place it under the pressure foot.
I have a simple solution, today I was getting frustrated I finally decided to try scotch tape I tried it on a scrap piece of fabric first. I sewed right through the tape and pulled it off after. No residue of tape left at all. Problem solved.

Good idea. Have you ever tried glue stick? Any brand, they're all water soluable. Glues the button to the fabric, and when you're done, you can pop the button free of the glue. First time the garment is washed, all traces of the glue are gone!

I have tried both the tape and glue stick and prefer the glue stick, but the glue stick application needs to 'set' for a minute or two so that it will stick to the fabric. The tape is instant. I still prefer the glue stick.

Painters tape is also easy to handle. It is great for lining, say, up 2 rows of small buttons precisely. Then take a pin and poke the holes so you know where to position the SM needle. Once I tried the double sided wonder tape but that took too long.
