There's isn't a single, perfect method for ruffling that's going to work for every project, machine and seamstress. There are many, many methods for ruffling, and choosing the right one for your project is the key to making them hassle free. That's what Rufflicious week is all about!
Next week (October 22-26) we are going to run through a different ways of ruffing, and talk about which method works best for which types of projects. None of the methods will require special feet, hand sewing or even a serger! Just a regular home sewing machine, thread, and some patience.
