Why won’t my gathering foot gather?

The longer the stitch length and the tighter the upper tension, the fuller the gathers. The gathers will also be affected by the thickness of your fabric. You will see the best results in fine fabrics. Heavy fabrics are very hard to gather with this foot and would be better suited to gathering with a ruffler foot.

What is a gathering stitch on a sewing machine?

Gathering is usually done with a basting stitch sewn on your machine. A basting stitch is a stitch with the longest stitch length. If you are using a slippery fabric, you can easily sew basting stitches by hand. By using three rows of basting stitches rather than two, the gathers will be more even and controlled.
