New Monogram Style for
The Cornely (chainstitch) embroidery machine was developed for production in the 1888s to automate a popular hand stitch where the needle penetrates the fabric, comes back up through a loop of thread and proceeds in this fashion to create a chain of thread. These machines are still in use today for "fancy stitch" embroidery.
A modern embroidery machine uses two threads - a top thread and a bottom (bobbin) thread which lock together as a series of stitches is sewn. This type of machine can't make a true chainstitch, but it is possible to simulate the look of one. For this monogram style we have simulated a chainstitch, and to provide a bit more density for towels and thick fabrics there are two parallel runs of these stitches making up the parts of each letter. They are carefully crafted to maintain a handmade look.
