Super tutorial with pictures for any beginner and you might be thinking it does not take a genius to do this but believe me you can make the stitch to tight and it will not gather and you have to take it out and start all over again which is not fun.

A very handy guide to newbies who are unsure on how to use the sewing machine to make a gathering stitch, the instructions are very straightforward to follow and there are photos which show you close up how to pull the threads to gather the material. It also explains how to attach you gathered piece to another section of fabric which is really useful if you are making ruffled skirts or sleeves.
