Score!!!

I love my Singer buttonholer in the rose colored "space age" box, and I have all the metal cams for that one. BUT, it does not include a round "eyelet" cam, the closest it comes is with a 5/16" not-quite-round cam.
I gave my DMIL a 500 series machine and bought the newer style buttonholer for her years ago. That version did have a round eyelet cam. After DMIL died, we did not find the buttonholer, so I thought it was long gone, but today while I was over helping DD with the costume, she was digging through some drawers in DMIL's sewing table and FOUND THE BUTTONHOLER!. So now I have both the older metal cam one, and the newer version which will let me make better eyelets in DGD's velveteen Highland dance vests.
And DD will keep the second metal-cam one I bought on eBay.

Congrats Beverly! What a great find! My first sewing machine was an old Franklin Rotary from 1908 or something. I had one of those buttonholers and they are fabulous. Having seen anything that could compete until I got the designer SE.

I'm so tickled you have it now.

Thanks! My Singer XL5000 also does buttonholes, but since it is used for embroidery only, I haven't tested its buttonholes. And since I'm perfectly happy with the old 400/500 series attachments I see no reason to switch.
