Ruffler #86 is a specialist in the simple gathering and pleating of fabrics. Thanks to its variable setting options, both pleat
depth and frequency of gather can be varied. This means that Ruffler #86 can set a pleat with every stitch, every 6th stitch,
or every 12th stitch, as you choose. There’s also the option of sewing without pleating, without replacing the presser foot.
Gathering is performed by the special gathering blade, which causes the up-and-down motion of the needle to catch a bit
of fabric each time and slip it under the needle.
