How to gather fabric using gathering foot

How to gather fabric using gathering foot.

You already might known how to gather fabric by loosing the stitch length and pull the bobbin thread.

Here I am going to show you the gathering foot. I highly recommend it when you gather skirt panels or curtain etc which are not required to exactly match the matching points.

They look like these. The one in the two top pictures is for high shank sewing machines, the one in the two bottom pictures is for low shank sewing machines.

Attach this gathering foot to your machine. And sew regularly. The foot will automatically gather the fabric for you.
