First, try the differential feed. I think that you set it so that the setting is less than 1 to get it to feed in faster than out. If it isn't working, try a higher number.

If you can't get enough this way, the old fashioned way would be to reduce the presser foot pressure slightly and put your left index finger behind the foot, resting on the fabric to impede its progress through the machine.

I think that the differential feed should suffice.

How to change stich to long stich for gathering?


http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/3e3e5558857ed68836712ac8545abb48178772a5.pdf is the manual for your machine; look at p. 27. You want stitch 00, and then increase the stitch length with the up/down buttons on the control panel.

p. 24 of the pdf covers adjusting the top tension of the machine; you'll have an easier time of gathering if you reduce the top tension about 1-2 number setting.

Thread Tension


Are you using a plastic bobbin? I had that problem using plastic bobbins, Switched to metal bobbins and it solved that problem.

Also check to see if your bobbin's thread is wound tightly around it. If you can 'squeeze' the wound thread and it feels like it's not firm, the bobbin might need to be rewound.

When i do gathers on my machine i use the largest sticth,but the gathers r hard to pull. y/


Stitch length of 4, loosen your top tension by half a number and always pull up the bobbin threads.

If you need to gather yards of fabric then get a gathering foot. Janome make one - it looks like this

This foot is for creating soft gathers in lightweight fabrics. The underside of the foot is raised behind the needle and has a thick bar in front of the needle to gather the fabric. This works great to create the gathers as you sew. You can also gather and attach a ruffle onto a flat piece of fabric simultaneously, run the flat fabric through the top groove of the foot and the underneath fabric is gathered and stitched to the top piece, you need to keep the bottom piece feeding smoothly though so it takes practice to guide it evenly. Once mastered it is great to ruffle on valances and cushion frills.

Other option is use a ruffler foot, these will make a little ruffle every 12, 6 or 1 stitch so give a set result, and to obtain a more dramatic gather. They look like this.

The arm of the foot with a C'shape sits over the needle bar of the machine so it is moved up and down to activate the device. The little blade at the front moves backwards at regular intervals forcing a "tuck" of fabric into the feed to be stitched. Again you can ruffle and stitch to straight fabric at once but it is an art to master.

The weight of the fabric you are gathering is obviously the key variable, ginghams and poplins are lightweight so gather easily but if you need to gather something heavy like cordoroy it is going to be a battle and threads may break. If so, stitch two lines of gathers and don't try to do long runs, you'll just break a thread and have to start over.

Another good way is to zig zag over a length of perle cotton, taking care not to actually stitch the pearle at all. You can then gather up the fabric along it, this works well for heavier weights.

I cannot find instructions on how to gather/ruffle with my imagine wave babylock overlocker, please help.I need to know what settings and how many threads to use etc.


I do not have the Wave, but in the manual for my Imagine, on page 17, it states:

"at the maximum setting of 2.0 the differential feed can gather lightweight fabric to nearly double fullness.

To maximize the gathering effects, use the longest stitch length setting."

There is no indication as to the number of threads to use, but in the picture, it appears to be four.

I would use scraps of the same fabric to be ruffled and test this technique until I achieved the preferred look.

I would like step by step instructions how to gather a ruffle on my machine. Thanks so Much!!


I don't know if this will help. Overedge and gather, select overlock 4, increase stitch lenght to 4.Lift foot and dial differential feed to 2.2. Increase the 2 needles to 4.6

Ruffler/gathering foot


There is a ruffling foot for brother machines. Google Brothers sewing machine feet and I am sure you will find a automatic ruffling foot.
