Trying to us a gathering foot on my Expression 3.0. What settings?

I bought the gathering foot from my Pfaff dealer but there were no instructions as to how to use it and what settings I needed to use on my machine. Is there a PDF that I can view for instructions?

    I think I have answered my own question. I found this information on the Pfaff site:

  • Leslie Lauer Nov 03, 2012

    Set the needle to the far left. Insert fabric to be gathered under the presser foot, extending slightly to the right. Fabric to wich the gathered fabric should be attached is inserted into the slot on the presser foot.

Not sure what the problem is but you might try this:

Remove the top thread completely from the machine.
Make sure the machine is cleaned under the needle plate, the hook/bobbin area, the feed dogs, etc.
If your manual instructs oiling, do so as described.
Confirm that the feed dogs are in the raised position.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot then rethread the top thread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Confirm the needle is installed correctly (does the flat part face the right direction?). Is it the right needle for your machine.
Set the top tension to the midway point.
Check that the stitch length is set to at least #2.
Re-test your machine. Tweak the top tension until the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Some machines have a presser foot pressure adjustment that increases or decreases the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and the feed dogs. You may need to increase this pressure.

PFAFF sewing machine: How do I attach the gathering foot on the PFAFF 1473?


usually a gathering foot or ruffler fits on like one would fit an old style foot. Unscrew the thumb screw that holds the snap on foot holder.... and place your foot making sure the needle holder thumb screw holds the lever on the other side. And tighten the thumb screw to hold on the foot.

Good luck.

I own a freesia 425 & I bought a gathering foot. How do I use it? Where do I put the settings?


not knowing whether you have a Viking foot, I'm not sure how to advise you. Suggest you visit an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for assistance. They are usually eager to help. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck.

Hi there,
I have a Pfaff Expression which went the same way, but showed the error message "WD".

My dealer advised me to change the light bulb, which I've done, and since then its been fine.

Hope this works for your too.

All the best.
