For such a wondrous little attachment, the ruffler foot sure looks intimidating. There are so many complicated looking parts on it that work together to make the fabric ruffle as it goes under the presser foot. And dials and knobs to adjust ruffle depth and frequency. And then there’s the claw-looking piece that stabilizes the foot on the needle bar! Kate from See Kate Sew takes the scary out of the ruffler foot with a tutorial showing how to install it and how to use it to gather up your fabric into pretty ruffles. Go to her tute to see how to use your ruffler foot.
