A flexible tool for all your gathering and pleating needs.
For sewing small pleats and gathering on a single layer of fabric, as well as pleated ruffles
The ruffler is adjustable and becomes indispensable when the amount of gathering needs to be controlled exactly
You can control both the depth of each pleat and the distance between pleats
It is particularly useful when long rows of gathering are required such as in Home Dec projects
You can gather or pleat a single layer of fabric while attaching it to a straight, ungathered layer in one operation
Recommended for light to medium weight fabrics
The Ruffler Attachement comes with Low Shank Adapter BF75V
This means that Ruffler foot 86V can set a pleat with every stitch, every 6th stitch, or every 12th stitch, as you choose. There’s also the option of sewing without pleating, without replacing the presser foot (ruffler setting = 0). Gathering is performed by the special gathering blade, which causes the up-and-down motion of the needle to catch a bit of fabric each time and slip it under the needle.
The result: neat, even gathering and pleats on home furnishings or garments. The depth of the pleat can be infinitely varied by turning the adjusting screw.
