These machines are so special! A hand guided multi directional “steering wheel” under the table of the machine guides the needle in any direction, creating a row of chain stitches with a hooked needle. The other hand moves the fabric under the needle in any direction you push it. These machines are European at their core but play a big part in the creation of Americana, having given birth to Western chain stitch embroideries, the Chenille varsity letter and intricate military style cording. We have over 10 machines, some with an elevated bobbin in a post allowing us to get into tight corners of most finished garments.
