I have never tried to gather on my serger--it's old and I try not to change any settings or anything on it becuase it will never work again if I do!!!  And I also have a gathering foot and a ruffler for my sewing machine, but I prefer to tighten the tension all the way and set it to the longest stitch and gather away--less fiddling with stuff!!!

I may venture to try in on the serger...!  (I so want a new serger for Mother's Day, Christmas, Birthday, Anniversary--whatever day!!!)

Thanks for posting this. I am in the middle of making some maternity halter tops for me (please get here summer!!!) and this was a life saver!!!! I read that other online tut, but don't they say to NOT adjust the needle tension? Um, that doesn't work.

Anyway, thanks again for posting this!!!!!

I know this is on serger ruffles or gathers but I can give you tip for regular machines.

1). Pull long piece of thread still attach to spool/cone.....this has to be the lenght of your fabric.  Your long thread can even be thin crochet thread or quilting thread, which even make you comfortable.

2).  Set your machine on wide zig zag......now hold the long thread is in the center of presser foot and zig zag over it.

-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-/\-------------- (this is suppose to be straight line and zig zag without breaks.)

3). Pull the long thread and you will have a gather. This is easier then the two thread thing I learned in sewing class year ago.

 I know this is not exact.....not sure how to do on computer.  I will try to post a picture later.  I hope this makes it easier for you folks.
