Tips and Techniques for Taming the Ruffler

They look scary but they are easier to use than they appear and can be used to create a variety of beautiful gathered and pleated effects. A ruffler is more correctly a pleater, as it pushes a fold of fabric under the needle using a sliding bar. A ruffler can be used with a single layer of fabric to pleat or gather it, or it can be used to simultaneously pleat one layer of fabric while stitching it onto another layer. Go in depth on all things ruffles with us live. Download the free guide here.
