Chainstitch Video Demonstration by Lindsay Foryan
This is a short video demonstrating how a Chainstitch machine is operated. The machine in this video is an antique 1942 Consew Chainstitch machine. It is 100% hand-operated, unlike today's modern embroidery machines. It was a very popular form of embroidery through the 1950's - 1970's. Commonly found on bowling T-Shirts, Car Club Jackets, and Biker Patches. It is considered an art form ( at least by our staff anyway!) due to the free motion of the machine. There are very few people who know how to use this machine today as it takes a long time to learn to operate with precision and accuracy.
