I got up to position (!) 2 ok, then when I tried to go back up on position 3 it didn't work and just chewed up my fabric. Is it supposed to go backwards, or are you supposed to turn the fabric around? Did I do something wrong?

Holly - Contestar

The same thing happened to me when I first tried this too, Holly.

I discovered that I was over-stitching position 2.

Now, I do a maximum 3 stitches only, before I go on to position 3 and everything works beautifully. I don’t have to turn the fabric around - position 3 stitches in reverse, and I finish off with a couple of stitches in position 2, to top off the button-hole.

I hope this helps!
