Ruching  (pronounced  ROOSHING -- 'roo' rhymes with 'who') is a French word which means to plait. It is a very ancient sewing technique. Cindy has dated it to as far back as the Middle Ages.
A strip of fabric or ribbon is gathered in a repeat pattern and as the gathering thread is drawn up the strip forms scallops or petals.
