Wooden dowelling to roll your fabric onto,

I absolutely love my Princess Pleater! I bought the starter set including the thread box as I had never pleated by machine before. I was slightly worried it would be difficult to use but with the help of the written instructions provided and Christine's YouTube tutorials (see House Of Smocking on YouTube) I found this pleating machine very easy to use! I have already successfully pleated a few garments for myself on it very easily. I also love the fact the thread feeder fits beautifully with this pleater and I'm so pleased I bought this starter pack that included everything as it really helped, especially the thread feeder. I also love the fact that the Princess Pleater is made in the UK so I'm helping support british manufacturing. I initially wasn't sure whether I should be purchasing the Princess or Read so I asked Christine for her advice and again, this pleater was definitely the right choice for my pleating needs. I have saved hours and hours of hand pleating by using this machine as I can pleat basic garments within around 10 - 15 mins and I'm still a complete beginner on this. If you love smocking and have been considering getting a pleater then this one is great!
