I had an actual Finishing Friday this week! I crafted almost all day and
That took most of the day, but I did get fabric prepped to start playing with this
Having Husqvarna and Bernina machines, my options for a ruffler were to get the brand-name machine-specific feet for $100+, or find a decent one that will work with the Bernina adapter. It's one of the best things about the Bernina. Husqvarna specifically doesn't work with anyone else's feet, or I should say, hardly anyone else's feet as the binding foot does work. As fast as they now want people to upgrade machines, Husqvarna feet are very pricey and very risky because not all Husqvarnas use the same feet and accessories. Mine take a style "6" or "7" (I always have to look up which), which means that there are styles 1-5 (at least) that flat out won't work on my machine. Bernina has expensive feet too, but they are broken down into "old" style (which includes my machine) and "new" style, which includes the computerized machines. That made it a bit easier anyway, but then they made an adapter, which allows me to use most low-shank feet on the Bernina. THAT has been wonderful, and just saved me around $75.
At first I was a bit dismayed to find that the ruffler had a guide on the right which didn't give me enough space to go down the center of a 3-inch fabric strip,
