Stitch Buttons by Machine

submitted by Monty S. Leitch
from Threads #133

Attaching nonshank, sew-through buttons by machine is definitely the way to go: the buttons are securely attached and it takes less time than hand-sewing. But buttons, especially small ones, have a tendency to wiggle out from under the presser foot until the first few stitches are in place. To prevent the wiggle, I touch each button to a glue stick before placing it on the fabric—just enough to keep it in place for sewing. It stays firmly in place and makes the task quicker and much less frustrating.
