Ruffler Foot For Janome & Elna High Shank (Original Janome) Made In Japan

Makes ruffles with evenly spaced tucks and gathers easily. Premium quality!

Rufflers have been around for a very long time and have changed very little over the years; they have however remained very popular. Although at first sight a ruffler may appear bulky and complicated, its innovative design actually makes it very easy to use. This design allows fabric to be ruffled or pleated to the desired fullness quickly and easily and also has the capability to vary the sizes of ruffles.

Suitable for all domestic sewing machines; Janome & Elna High Shank

How it works:

When the ruffling blade on the upper portion of the presser foot is moved forward, its teeth catch the fabric and force it forward into gathers or tucks. The interval of tucks can be adjusted.

  • The Difference Between a Gathering / Shirring Foot and a Ruffler Foot:
  • What use to be a tedious and often frustrating technique of manually gathering and pleating fabric can now be achieved effortlessly with either a Gathering foot or a Ruffler foot. Both are great accessories to make your sewing life a little easier and faster. There are, however, a few differences between the two. The fabric is gathered differently with a Ruffler than with a Gathering foot and the end result looks slightly different. The way I see it, the Gathering Foot is great for normal, generic gathers, whereas the Ruffler Foot is more customisable and more versatile.
  • Shirring / Gathering with a Ruffler Foot:
    • Set feed selector to 1 pleat per stitch.
    • Reduce pleat depth to about 2-3mm, depending on fabric type.
