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 larger to sit directly on the Feeder box like the Princess Pleater

Can be used with the Pleater Feeder using the adapter lid

Adapter lid supplied free when buying a pleater and feeder

    I purchased this pleater from House of Smocking a month ago. I have wanted a pleater for many years and finally took the plunge! Christine from House of Smocking provided excellent service, from helping me to decide which pleater size was the right one for me, to shipping it to me here in Sweden. It was sure to practice several times before using it "for real" on my actual project, and found the instructional videos really worthwhile. I would absolutely recommend buying this pleater from House of Smocking.
