Chainstitch is an embroidery technique in which a series of interconnected stitches are sewn to form a chain-like pattern. These stitches are used to draw designs on fabric, much like a tattoo gun for garments. This style is most often seen on vintage bowling shirts, western wear, work clothes and motorcycle jackets.
All chainstitch in my studio is performed on one of my three 100+ year old hand guided machines, never on a computerized machine. You can see more about the machines here.
Because all work is done by hand customers have complete freedom of the design, style, colors and size.
