Smocking Pleaters by Read and Princess
Read Pleaters come in three different versions
24 Row Regular
24 needles spaced at 1 cm apart with half cm spaces across half of the roller width. This model is suitable for most normal pleating applications.
24 Row Maxi
Half cm spacing across the entire width of the roller (47 needles). Half spaces can be used as guidelines when smocking and to improve holding difficult fabrics which tend to bubble. The Maxi can also be used as a Regular pleater (24 needles) by removing the half space needles (every second needle).
32 Row Pleater
32 needles spaced 1 cm apart with half spaces across half of the roller width. This is the only pleater of this size available worldwide.
24 full space rows and half space rows for the full length of the rods. Specially designed base to integrate perfectly with the Pleater Feeder.
