As the sole of this foot does not lie flat on the feed dog, the Gathering foot feeds the fabric unevenly. Therefore a charming gathering effect results while sewing.
Switch off the machine. Attach the foot as described in the instruction manual.
For some models, the presser foot holder may have to be removed. To do this, switch off the machine, loosen the screw and remove the presser foot holder. Mount the gathering foot onto the presser foot bar and secure with the screw.
Gathering a fabric
Note: Stronger gathered effects can be achieved using thinner and lightweight fabrics.
Stitch type: straight stitch
Stitch length: >3
Feed dog: raised
Thread tension: max. 4 (adjust according to the gathered effect required)
The degree of gathering depends on the fabric thickness, the stitch length, and the thread tension. Do a sewing test beforehand. Sew onto a flat piece of fabric, keeping the fabric straight.
