SOURCE: I can't get my Pfaff 230a to straight stitch!

The stitch selector switch is most likely the culprit. Have you tried operating the machine upside down?

CANNOT Figure Out Shirring on... Brother LS-500


I was just reading in the manual for my antique Montgomery Ward Model 30. It described shirring using a ruffle foot. If we can extrapolate from this info you may be able to do shirring with yours. You'll need similar material scraps to practice.

It describes a "shirring plate" that essentially goes over the feed dog area and eliminates their pulling the fabric through. So to emulate this you'll need to lower the feed dogs. Look for a slide type switch either on the front or back of the machine near the needle area.

Attach your ruffler foot. The instructions say to remove the separator blade... that's the very bottom part of the attachment. On mine there's a screw that allows you to take that part off which only leaves the blade that tucks the fabric to make the ruffle. (hopefully modern machines have this ability) Make sure you place your screw and blade in a safe place. (I like to use masking tape... and tape it to a safe place)

Place the material between the feed dog area and the ruffler blade. Longer stitches mean bigger and more loose ruffles. So lets start with big ruffles.... set your stitch really long. Set your ruffler setting for the desired type of ruffle or Plait. Shirring is done with a single stitch plait or "gathering"

Ok here is where it gets a bit confusing because modern seamstresses don't have the variety of threads we used to (or can afford anyway) It says. "Thread bobbin with mercerized DMC floss No.3 keeping the bobbin tension loose, long stitches and thread top with stitching silk that contrasts strongly with the color of the DMC sot that the stitch of the bobbin thread will stand out clearly as a trim" It also suggests the use of the quilting guide to make your stitch rows evenly spaced.

So practice this technique on some scrap or similar materials. Good luck. ;)

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 have Model HF 2022 and I am trying to make a gathering stitch (a long sttich that I can pull one thread and make the material ruffle). I have tried to use the number 4 length to do this but the stitch...


It is not the stitch length, but rather the thread tension that you change to do this neat little trick. Lower your thread tension to about 1, just enough so it won't birdsnest, then try again. You also might want to try an inexpensive ruffler foot (starting at about 15 dollars) or a shirring foot (around $5). These would help making toddlers and pleats a quicker, easier, more uniform task. ;)

Does the XL 3200 have a gathering stitch?


You will need a gathering foot, a shirring foot or a ruffler - http://www.sewingmachine-sales.co.uk/sewing_machine_info/video/sewing-machine-feet.php

You can however, gather without these accessories.

Lay crochet thread down the line you want to gather and zig-zag over it anchoring one end and then pull up the gathers.

Another method is to make long stitches and pull the thread to gather.

Make a sample with the same fabric you will be gathering to see which technique works best for you.

I have an Elna 5000 computer class 500 sewing machine and would like to know how to use the gathering foot?


I could not find the foot for your machine, but did find this site with many videos - http://www.sewingmachine-sales.co.uk/sewing_machine_info/video/45/gathering-foot-plastic.html

Check the shirring foot as well as the gathering foot. Maybe one will be of help.

I'm trying to do shirring?


My machines has a shirring foot, so I don;t have the same machine. However, I do not think that elastic thread will work in the bobbin. Have you tried it the other way around? Do you have your manual?
