I just learned something new for all of you who sew. You don't need to spend a penny on a special ruffle or gathering foot just do this. I saw it on pinterest and tried it and it works like a charm. I am excited.
An easy way to gather is to set your tension on the highest it goes...my machine 9. Put your stitch length to the highest it will go....my machine is 5. And now just start sewing your fabric. The machine will ruffle it for you!!!
Just be sure to write down the number of where the correct tension is so you can put it back when you are done and you don't have to have a heart attack trying to set your tension.
