Wide Gathering Foot #16


Wide Gathering Foot #16

Gathering is easy with the right foot! Use the Wide Gathering Foot #16 to gather single layers of fabric in all fabric types.

  • 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).
