Janome 12000 Gathering Foot “V”, 9mm

Creating soft gathers

The underside of the gathering foot is raised behind the needle, and is thicker in front of the needle. While stitching, it gathers your fabric to create ruffles. When attaching the foot to your Horizon Memory Craft 12000, be sure to first:

  • Insert the back bar in to the groove
  • Then, snap on the foot
  • On the touch-screen of your machine, go to “Utility Stitches”
  • Choose a straight stitch
  • Press the “Adjust” key
  • Change your stitch length to between 3 and 5
  • Change your upper tension to tighten the gathers. The tighter the setting, the more gathers you will have
  • Place your fabric under the foot and begin sewing

And now, you’ve created a beautiful soft gather. For larger ruffles, use the ruffler foot.
