Product was mailed quickly and was just as I expected.

Ruffling/gathering by hand is so time consuming, this foot makes it so much easier and saves a lot of time!

UPDATE 3/10/13: I've learned that the link to the pdf I posted originally no longer works. Below are 2 new links that should take you to the webpage (from 'youcanmakethis.com') that offers the free pdf download.

The gathering foot is a fantastic purchase!! I was skeptical before buying it, but it is completely worth it! It's super easy to attach and after testing it twice on a piece of scrap fabric, I was completely confident using it on the dress I was about to start. You will never have to hand-gather again and will save tons and tons of time. This foot gives you perfectly even gathers. Best of all, it allows you to gather one piece of fabric while sewing it to another piece that remains ungathered (like when sewing a gathered skirt onto a smooth bodice). I highly recommend this presser foot!! A helpful PDF download guide for machine gathering and ruffling can be found here:

The gathering foot does not come with instructions, however here is how it works.

Make sure the fabric you wish to gather is several times longer than you need for a finished project.

First make sure the fabric you are placing the ruffle on to has a finished edge. Use the PICOT FOOT to achieve this. Then feed that edge into the groove of the GATHERING FOOT.

Second place the ruffling fabric under the foot, lower the foot and begin to sew, making sure to guide the top fabric against the right edge of the foot while not exerting any pressure on the top fabric. Guide the ruffle fabric straight as you sew, but let it slip easily as you sew.

Be sure to keep a sample of what this foot does with the foot in your sewing kit for reference.

It takes some practice to feed the ruffle fabric evenly under the top fabric, so take your time and practice on scraps first. Soon you will get the hang of how the foot gathers the bottom ruffle onto the top fabric. It produces a wonder effect for curtains, pillows and little girls dresses etc.

It's a great foot to have for specialty projects.

Exactly what I needed for a wonderful price. Shipped fast! Great!
For novice sewers some people interchange the terms "gathering foot" and "Ruffler foot" they are two different types of feet and do similar but different types of work. Good luck!

For what it is, this foot is exactly what it is suppose to be. If you know how to use a gathering foot already, it's perfect. If you don't, good luck in figuring out the details. A lot of people online who give tutorials mistakenly call refer to a ruffling foot by the term gathering foot. I have yet to find anything that details how to calculate what settings your tension and stitch length should be in order to achieve a particular ratio of gathering. Some sort of brief instruction pamphlet would be ever so helpful for those who have never used this foot. This is not the foot that you can just set the ratio and let it do its thing. You have to adjust both the tension and the stitch length in order to get heavier or lighter gathering. It's very trial and error.

That said, that quality of the foot is very good and it does exactly what it is suppose to do with my Brother SE-400 machine. It will just take a bit of testing to get the amount of gathering that I want

I've got less than 2 weeks to finish a bumble bee costume, so I sat down tonight ready to tackle the gathering foot. I saw countless YouTube videos that made it look so darn easy but didn't go into the tension and stitch length information that is so vital to gathering. Finally found one that went over the basics. Did a few practice rounds and the darn thing wouldn't gather evenly. So back to You Tube and Google I went. The problem is there is so much info out there, but extracting just the right facts you need can be time consuming. Armed with what I thought was the best info I could find, I tried it again and voila! it gathered wonderfully. You can see in the photo (black polka dot ruffle against yellow background), my practice gather is on
top, but the finished gathered piece on the bottom is quite an improvement. So here's some tips for y'all.

1. Finish the lower edge of the ruffle with a basic straight stitch. Press with an iron.

2. Set tension to the highest setting and stitch length to the highest. On my Brother CS6000i, I set the tension to 8 and stitch length to 5 which are the highest settings. Depending what you're making, you can adjust this as you see fit. But this is as good as it's gonna get with my machine. 45" of fabric yielded 25" of ruffle with these settings.

3. I set my speed at slightly faster than the medium speed. This is my normal speed to stitch. I haven't tried a faster speed because my results were what I was looking for. Don't know if a faster speed yields a tighter gather. This is something you'll have to figure out what you're comfortable with. I'm not messing with it at this point.

4. Threads go underneath (contrary to some videos I saw where they pulled the bobbin thread to the top).

After reading the reviews, I decided to give this Gathering Foot a try. Worth the $4!! Does not come with directions, but the reviews were helpful and go to the Brother website! They have a PDF on all Embellishing Feet which was very helpful. The gathers at 7, 8 and 9 tension is incredible & so even and consistent. I love it!
