About my embroidery projects

The process takes place on the nearly 100 year old

hand controlled embroidery machine, not a computer


All work done by hand

Chainstitch and Chenille are 2 different stitch types that are performed on my 1930 Singer model 114w103 swing machine.  Unlike most sewing machines, the direction of the stitch is controlled by a handle under the work table that rotates in 360 degrees and maneuvers the stitch in the same direction that the handle is pointing. This type of operation allows me to essentially draw on the fabric using the thread to create intricate designs and text.

Historically this type of machine was used to embellish pennants, western wear, bowling shirts, and varsity jackets.  Because of the versatilely of the machine, the uses are almost limitless and I look forward to pushing those boundaries by honoring the history of this machine while combining it with other modern techniques available in my studio.

Please contact me to see how I can best help you with your custom project, from a single patch to a custom line of hats.
