I just bought a ruffler!!!!!!!!

Crazy K | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

I am excited.  I just went out a bought a ruffler………got it for 20% off even!!  Whooohooo.  Now I have to learn to use it!  Had one years and years ago on an old model Pfaff.  Used it just to see how it worked but never really did anything with it.  Now I have little girls to sew for so I’m thinking fun things are going to happen!!

    Whoohoo!  I love my ruffler....d.

      Well, I'm disappointed so far.  It was to come with a longer screw that holds part of the ruffler as well as the needle.  The part wasn't in the box...........so, back to the store.  Got the screw, came home and it wasn't long enough to work!!!  Back to the store.  The gal said her manager would be in tomorrow and they would look into it because if it happened to me, its going to happen to anyone with an SE that buys the ruffler.  So......I'm sitting in limbo.  I hope to hear something in the next day or so.  I'm hoping the elusive screw is available and that they just didn't have the correct one at the store.....  can't wait to start playing with it!!

      Wish me luck!!!!!!!!!

        I'm sorry, I must be thick this evening, but what machine are you on?

        1. Crazy K | | #4

          I have a Husqvarna Designer SE..........  I wasn't very clear when I just called it an SE..........that was my error.  Sorry!

            Kay, are you sure that you got the correct ruffler for your SE? Viking has 3 rufflers according to my accessories book. I have a different model Viking but I believe it takes the same ruffler and the part number for group 5,6 and 7 machines is the same. My machine would be in group 6 and the SE is in group seven. The part number for the ruffler is 920 032-096.

            Yes, the book was checked..........its got a '7' on the box and the book said a '7' was the correct one.  I'm still waiting to see what the manager can find out.  She probably had to call the main office.  I hope to hear soon.  If it's the wrong one, I will exchange it..........if it's the right one, I need the screw.  There was an error somewhere along the line...........just not sure where!

            Hooorraaayyy!  I got the ruffler fixed.  I finally went to the store and along with the clerk, took a new ruffler and tried it on an SE at the store.  It fit.......so I brought that one home and it fit my machine, too.  Seems that the 'fork' that slips around the needle screw was bent........or the wrong ruffler was in the correct box.  So.....anyway, now I have a ruffler that works.  I just have to play a bit so I kind of know how much fabric it will take in a given situation.  And, play with the different settings for preference in different applications..........but, hey, it works.  That's the main thing!!  I have 'permission' (ha ha ) to make a couple more summery outfits for messy Miss Taylor because mom can't keep up with the wash.  It seems that Taylor can be clean one minute and a total mess the next.........just while mom turns her head to help Miss Taylor's big brother with something!  She's one Messy Little Missy!

            That's great. Now you can have fun making a lot of pretty things for Taylor. Enjoy.

            Do you keep your samples filed with the settings? Cathy

          6. Crazy K | | #10

            I haven't gotten that far yet but I think it would be a good idea......especially if I don't use it for a while.........I would never remember what I had done!

            After you have played with a few scraps, just staple the sample to a piece of cardstock or a manilla file folder, cut in half along the fold. Jot down all the information. You can usually put 2 samples on each page before it gets too bulky or heavy. Put it in a 3 ring binder. TaDa. Sample Book of Techniques.
            I keep my samples separate from my cheat sheet book because they are bulky, but they sit side by side on my desk top.
            Every time I start a new project, I always run a scrap through my machines to check thread tension, stitch length, thread colour, and if the fabric will work for the seam or hem that I have chosen for the project. This way, I often end up with samples of new techniques or old techniques on new fabrics. These get filed in the book for future reference. The original sample book was started in college and I was graded on each sample, I have just added to it over the years. Cathy

            Thanks.......sounds like a great idea!  I know with the ruffler I'll have to do something like that......especially if I use it infrequently I wouldn't remember from one time to the next!  And different fabrics are going to ruffle much differently........I have already noted that.
