Create beautiful texture on any fabric from denim to batiste by stitching raised tucks using a pintuck foot and a double needle. Pintucks can be made with or without a filler cord, depending on the fabric and the look desired. Once the machine is threaded with two spools of thread for a double needle, the sewing is simple. Just stitch as always and the foot will do the work.
