Beginner’s Guide to Serging (Ep 12): How to use a Gathering/Shirring Foot

written by Sarah August 19, 2016

Welcome back to our Beginner’s Guide to Serging! In this episode, we will teach you how to use a Gathering/Shirring Foot on your serger.

Gathering on your serger is as simple as switching your differential feed to 2.0 and increasing your stitch length. However, with the gathering foot, you’re able to gather fabric and attach it to a straight edge while finishing your raw ends – all in one easy stitch. It’s the fastest way to create ruffled edges for cute girl skirts, frilly tablecloths, elegant tapestries, or anything else your mind can think up.

Happy serging!

Hello Denise,
Here is a link to a gathering/shirring foot that is guaranteed to fit your Singer 14SH754, http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/shirring-foot-singer-550620.aspx
We do ship to New York and we also ship to Brazil so, your daughter could purchase it and have it sent to New York or you could purchase it and have it shipped directly to you.

I would like to see more of this as I am new to this type of work. It looks like a great way to get the best looking finish I have been working on.
