    Hi Lindsay! I went out and bought a ruffler foot after seeing this video! Cannot WAIT to start using it. Like Pat, I didn’t know there was a ruffler for the serger so that might be my next purchase. I’m Re-watching your video this morning and then going to town when all my girls are in school today. Thanks for such a high quality video. You’re incredible!
