So What The Hell Is Chainstitch?
Historically, chainstitch embroidery was used for work-wear and western wear...think name patches on work jumpsuits, letterman jackets, & cowboys. Chainstitch embroidery machines are unique from other sewing or digital embroidery machines because they are hand-steered which allows for free-flowing lines & lettering, kind of like drawing with thread!
Today, there are very few original machines still in existence and only a few manufacturers who still make the machines and replacement parts. Artists like myself are truly keeping the art alive as there is very little education and information left. I work on a 1950s original Singer 114w103 in my studio and bring my Consew 104-1T reproduction machine to my live embroidery events. I incorporate my long time love of hand lettering and illustration into my obsession with vintage & working with my hands.
Thanks for supporting my work!
