Well. What an epiphany! The latest issue (#135) has an article on machine embroidered buttonholes and why they are better than the standard machine ones. It made a great deal of sense to me as the old way with manipulating the fabric around with the feed dogs always seemed cumbersome.
Jennifer Stern (the author) says that embroidery software programs include sample buttonholes. I can’t seem to find any in my software. I have the Babylock Palette for my Esante and also use Embird. Can anyone help? I found one buttonhole with grown-up styling on Emblibrary and bought it. Can anyone point me to others?
