Join Katrina Walker on Friday, January 20th at 10:00 a.m. CT for a FREE LIVE tutorial. Ruffler attachments have been around for over 100 years. 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.

    I've tried several polyester threads that are shredding. could you recommend a name for a thread for the ruffler?
