*Cornely embroidery machine MadeCornely, ErcoleFranceEurope1880-1923 This Cornely embroidery machine is an important example of the mechanisation of this traditional practice. The first successful machine was developed by the French engineer, Antione Bonnaz, in 1865 and produced chain-stitch embroidery. Ercole Cornely developed this further to produce both chain and moss stitches at his factory in Paris. At first the machines were called Bonnaz machines and later became known as Cornely machines. Many of the early machines were prize winners at the Paris Expositions Universelles of 1889 and 1900. These machines were: '... inspired both by hand-tambouring and by contemporary inventions in the field of sewing machines.' They were exported around the globe, even to areas that were renowned for their hand embroidery, such as St Gallen in Switzerland. The Cornely machine had a great impact on the embroidery industry. It was the first single-needle embroidery machine, was easy to use, could be used in the home or a small workroom and as the mechanism developed it became difficult to distinguish machine from hand sewn. This is a C Cornely machine and was used for underbraiding. Christine Risley describes the C machine and the work it produced: 'The braiding appeared on the underside of the fabric which was placed face downwards on this machine. This underbraiding machine was especially made for English embroiderers who preferred the cord or braid to be attached by a single thread or back stitch, not a chain stitch - the back stitch in this case being made of course by the underside of the chain stitch. This machine was also used for attaching pearls or looped edgings to lace etc.' The owner, Nina Read, demonstrated this machine at international exhibitions and used it in her embroidery business in Sydney, giving the machine a rich history.
