About Huckmade chainstitch embroidery service

These patches are custom made for each order using hand controlled 100+ year old embroidery machines, not computers.

Chainstitch Patches

Chainstitch is a vintage 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, essentially tattooing the 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 collection 100+ year old hand guided machines, never on a computerized machine.  You can see more about the machines here.
