Product Description

      • Suitable for gathering lightweight-to-medium weight fabrics. The fabric is gather automatically while being sewn.
      • The special indentation in the sole of Gathering Foot # 16 allows you to sew the material being gathered to a flat piece of fabric in a single operation. For this, the flat material is slipped into the indentation so that it isn't gathered at the same time
      • Gathering foot # 16 is available in two different widths. The wider version is designed for use with sewing machines with a stitch width of up to 9mm.
      • The slot of the foot allows the gathering of one piece of fabric while it is being attached to another (ungathered) layer. A ruffle can be made and attached in one operation
      • The amount of gathering can be adjusted by varying stitch length and needle thread tension
      • For heavier fabrics, the use of the long stitch or basting stitch will facilitate gathering
      • The distance between rows of gathering ranges from a minimum of 3/16" (5mm) to a maximum of 3/8" (10mm)
      • For applications where exact control of the gathering ratio is required, consider the use of the Bernina® Ruffler (# 86).
