To attach the ruffler you may need to move your cutting bladeover. Raise the needle to the highest point.Loosen your presserfoot thumb screw and attach the ruffler to presser bar, at thesame time place the form arm (letter B in the bottom picture)astride the needle clamp.There are many styles of ruffler attachments; however, thebasic operation is the same for all, such as where you place thematerial for gathering. The main differences are in theadjustments for the number of stitches between your actualruffle. The one on the right is calleda 12, 6, 1 stitch ruffler. Lifting thelever into the slots changes thedistance between each ruffler. Theone on the left is controlled by thethumbscrew on the top. Turning itwill give you the same variation.The lines 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 shows where to place the fabric forwhichever ruffling you are doing, such as:Line 1 - correct positionfor the fabric that youare placing the ruffledfabric onLine 2 - material to beruffledLine 3 - facing for theruffleLine 4 - strip of pipingmaterialLine 5 - edge to bepipedThe names and uses of the main parts of the Ruffler are veryimportant to just help you “master” this wonderful attachment. A -
 – attaches to your presser bar in place of your normalpresser footB –
Fork Arm
 – this is placed astride the needle clamp (a littlemaneuvering here)C –
 Adjusting Screw
 – regulates the fullness of your gatheringD –
 – this part projects through the slots in theadjusting level (lift & move)E –
 Adjusting Lever
 – this sets the ruffler for gathering ormaking a plait at every 6 inches or at every 12 inches (as youwish). This is also for disengaging the ruffler when gathering orplaiting is not wanted
F –
 Adjusting Finger
 – this regulates the width or the size of your plaitsG –
Separator Guide
 – this is the guide on the bottom of theruffler and contains slots into which the edge of the material isplaced to keep the heading of the ruffle even. It is also forseparating your material to be ruffled from the material you areplacing the ruffleH –
Ruffling Blade
 – this upper blue steel blade (teeth at theend) pushes the material in plaits up to the needleJ –
Separator Blade
 – this lower blue steel blade (withoutteeth) prevents the teeth of the ruffling blade coming intocontact with the feed of your machine or the material to whereyou are applying the ruffle or plaitingTo make fine gathering, shorten the stroke of the ruffling bladeby turning the adjusting screw (C) upward; also shorten thestitch. To make full gathering, lengthen the stroke of theruffling blade by turning the adjusting screw (C) downward;also lengthen the stitch. By varying these adjustments, manypleasing varieties of work can be accomplished.It is very important to look at thisphoto and the following Singerdiagrams to see how to place thematerial in the ruffler. If doneincorrectly (like I did the firstseveral times), it will not ruffle yourmaterial.
Correct position for material to be ruffled –
placeaccording to the photoTo make a ruffle and attach it with a facing in one operation.1.Insert the material to be ruffled between two blueblades.2.Please material to which ruffle is to be attached underseparator blade LINE 1.3.Place facing material over upper blue blade LINE 4.If facing is to be on the right side of garment, place wrong sidesof garment and ruffle together.

Your material cannot exceed 1 ¼” in width.2.Piping material is generally cut on the bias and should beabout ¼” wide when folded in the center. Place thepiping material in the ruffler following LINE 5 with thefolded edges of the piping to the right.
