vintage chainstitch embroidery sewing machine

Each of my pieces is created one at a time using a hand operated vintage chainstitch embroidery machine. This machine was made in the 1920s and has been creating beautiful items for generations. Each item is hand cranked one at a time  

While most modern machine embroidery is created and programmed on a computer, this machine is guided by hand. For this reason, no two pieces are exactly alike.
