Today I submit for your approval the buttonholes that the Brother LB6800PRW has to offer. There are ten different types to chose from.
#48 – Horizontal – Used for thin and medium weight fabrics – This is the one I use the most
#49 – Horizontal – This is for designed for high stress areas – Great on shirts in the bust area
#50 – Horizontal – Thick fabrics – Great for coats and denim
#51 – States it is for secured fabrics with backings – Not sure I understand but I like the look of it
#52 – Great for stretch or knit fabrics
#53 – Also for stretch or knit fabrics – Why the reason for 2?
#54 = Used for bound buttonholes
#55 – Keyhole for thick or furry fabrics
#56 – Keyhole for thick or medium weight fabrics
#57 – Horizontal Keyhole for thick or furry fabrics
I used the default settings when sewing there. I learned today that there are different buttonholes for horizontal or vertical placement. Obviously I stitched them all vertically.
Do you see the way both #52 and #53 is off on the bottom of the buttonhole. I have noticed that this happens no matter what type of fabric I use.
#62 is suppose to be an eyelet hole. All this machine does is sew a “C” and then stops. I haven’t found any help to correct this.
#58 and #59 are darning stitches, #58 for light or medium weight, #59 for heavy fabric. This is a stitch I don’t think I will ever use, if I get a hole in my sock I wear them. Or use them for dust rags!
#60 is considered a Bar Tack Stitch, I find this helpful at the beginning of a pleat or any high stress area where a seam may begin to separate
Do you have a cat partner when you sew? I know that both of mine are always beside me, whether I am stitching or cutting out, giving me a helping hand, adding a few cats hairs for additional texture to my fabrics.

Today is the beginning of the Kentucky Derby Festival and here in Southern Indiana and Louisville Kentucky we celebrate with “Thunder Over Louisville”. I have attached a link if you would like to see one of the largest firework shows in North America. The show begins at 3:30 pm, Eastern Standard Time with different types of planes performing stunts for your watching pleasure and ends with the fireworks beginning at 9:35 pm, Eastern Standard Time. Hope you get a chance to see them. This year is the 25th anniversary and it’s theme is ‘Throw Back Thunder’.
