Gathering foot v. Ruffling foot

Postby kimkatmom » January 2nd, 2007, 9:25 pm

My husband bought me a Brother Innov-is 4000 for Christmas. LOVE IT! I need, however, to get either a gathering foot or a ruffling foot. Can anybody tell me the difference between the two and some pros or cons on either.

Congratulations on your new machine, you are going to have so much fun. I am not sure if I can describe the difference of the feet. The ruffler is does more then the gathering foot. I do have a gathering foot but I have never been able to figure out how it is supposed to work :( I do like my ruffler, I can change the size of the ruffles, or I can make different size pleats. It does take some getting used to but I think if you like to add ruffles or pleats to items, the ruffler is the way to go.
