Older than dirt Singer buttonhole attachment!

So I am still slowly but surely cleaning stuff out and came across this little gem. I have seen, and in fact own, MANY Singer buttonholers but this is the oldest by far. It says on it that it is for a Singer VS2 machine.

Anyone ever see one like this? Any chance there are directions out there somewhere? I love gadgets :).

BTW, I have found that the Quilters Flea Market Group on Yahoo is a great place to buy or sell quilting related items. I have listed some stuf there with great success and you don’t get charged the e-Bay fees.

Having said that, there are still some items I am still listing on e-Bay just because I am :). Mostly vintage Singer related stuff. My goal is to reduce the clutter in my sewing room by at least half by spring. Ambitious I know.

In order to do that, I am trying to take at least one day per week to take pictures and list items either on the Quilters Flea Market site or e-Bay or both. Tonight my goal is to list 5 new auctions. I guess I better get to work!

If anyone knows anything about this attachment, I would appreciate hearing about it.

    Hi there your buttonholer is a Peerless Buttonholer and is very collectable! I have one too but am missing the thumb scrw and little pointer on the left side (as it is mounted in the machine facing you) Thank you so much for the images they will help me to repair my baby. As for insructions let me see what I can come up with
