    I know that Phillip will know the answer to this but I think you have to tighten your top tension.... but then again I could be wrong. Phillip?
    Kindest Regards

      Not sure if this might help? http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/si...06917008-p.php

      If not, maybe there is another site or video on YouTube that might have your foot demonstrated?

        Re: Gathering foot

        Hi there

        Last night while I was sewing I had a DVD on by Wendy Gardiner published by Traplet Publications. It was a set of four and has a relatively detailed instructions on using the gathering attachment. I have one myself, I don't use it often but it is a great timesaver.

        I don't know if this is available on the Internet but a quick Google should tell you.

        Regards, Jessie
        I'd rather be sewing!

          Thanks Jessie, but it's not the ruffler attachment - my fault for not making it clear. I have got a gathering foot.

            Pen you have tighten your tension - Really tight until you think the thread will break, you'll see the fabric will frill.

              Have not used one for a long time but I used to tighten tension right up put on the longest stitch size, also put your finger
              behind foot to help keep it bunched hope that makes sense? Flora

                Excellent - thanks all. Have tried it out and it looks like it will save a lot of time when gathering.
