Give your clothing and home textiles the personal touch with the gathering foot. It makes the gathering of fabric a straightforward task. It feeds the fabric through unevenly because its sole does not sit level on the feeder. This creates an attractive ruffle effect when sewing. The ruffle effect varies depending on the thread tension: the higher the tension, the tighter the ruffle effect. The gathering foot also has a notch in the foot. This helps with sewing the gathered material onto a smooth piece of fabric, all in the same step. It thus saves time and looks like a professional finish.
