Product Description

Current Model Read Pleater

Read 24 row Maxi Pleater has half cm spacing across the entire width of the roller (47 needles).  Half spaces can be used as guide lines 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).

This pleater has the following specifications

  • Heavy duty stable base-plate with anti-skid rubber feet
  • Extra large side-plate opening allowing for large capacity of rolled-up fabric
  • Simple, pin-type roller holding system allows for quick and easy needle access
  • Comfortable and user-friendly dual handles for maximum versatility
  • Heavy-solid brass rollers
  • Capable of handling heavy-weight fabrics

Comes complete with Original Read Needles

My personal opinion

This is a great machine and will cope with most pleating tasks

The two handles gives that extra grip with thicker fabric or if you are left handed

Plus points - Very easy to remove the roller to change the needles,

Full length half space rows so if you are smocking shoulder to waist or use silk fabrics or prefer more guide rows, then this is the machine for you

Minus points - non really just a shame the base is that bit bigger so that you need the adapter lid to use with the box

Pack Includes a Pleater Feeder, Adapter Lid and Bobbins

    Still early days for me with the pleater never used one before always used smocking dots. Christine was excellent going through everything with me before purchasing pleater and I decided this was the one that would suit me best. The pleater is easy to use and after practising for the past few weeks I am finding it very handy wished I'd got one years ago. I would also like to thank Christine for the promt delivery it arrived on the day that suited me best and only 2 days after ordering it.
