The Gathering foot makes quick, easy work of sewing decorative ruffles. The big plus with this foot is that it allows you to gather a piece of fabric and stitch it to a second, flat piece in a single operation - saving you time and effort. The fabric to be gathered is fed under the Gathering foot's flap, while the fabric that remains flat passes over it. The bottom layer of fabric is gathered wth a 4-thread stitch and stitched to the flat fabric. At the same time as this is happening, the fabric edge is trimmed and neatened. An edge guide on the side of this presser foot can be adjusted via a screw. Suitable for use with a variety of fabrics, the Gathering foot has a wide range of applications. Use it to construct decorative cushion covers and curtains, as well as elegant blouses and evening wear.
