Pleaters & Accessories

Over the years we have tried almost every type of pleater on the market (and some that are now off the market too!).  We have had the most consistent success with the Pullen 16 Row pleater which we use in the shop on a daily basis. 

We do stock generic replacement needles that fit all brands.
