About the process of using these machines

Huckmade chainstitching

All my chainstitch and chenille projects are made on these antique machines using a free-hand steering handle under the table to control it, not a computer

This means that I am using the machine to "draw" your embroidery onto the garment, but following a template or using a computer to apply it. 

Let's get started on your project
