Pintucks are often associated with Heirloom Sewing, especially childrens clothes and christening gowns. But they can also give a whole new dimension to other aspects of sewing such as bed linens, table linens and other home furnishings. Pintucks are tiny “false tucks” created by sewing parallel rows of stitching using a 2mm twin needle. Using a pintuck foot with the twin needle helps to space the tucks an equal distance apart. The foot has multiple grooves on the underside through which the pintucks can ride as you sew the adjacent rows.
There are two feet in this set, one with 7 fine grooves and one with 5 deep grooves, suitable for standard and corded pintucks.
