Sheila's Pleater - a photo

This is a photo of my pleater. It can draw up 24 rows of stitching at one time or 12 1/2 rows and 12 rows on the left for closer rows.
It works best on fine, unsized fabric. It does not work with heavier fabrics. The raaw silk glided through like butter.


  1. Would love to see some pictures to show how it works!

  2. Yeah me too...pictures please
