See the demo video of a vintage machine just like the Consew.  This is a short video demonstrating how a Chainstitch machine is operated. The machine in this video is an antique 1942 Consew Chainstitch machine. It is 100% hand-operated, unlike today's modern embroidery machines. It was a very popular form of embroidery through the 1950's - 1970's. Commonly found on bowling T-Shirts, Car Club Jackets, and Biker Patches. It is considered an art form due to the free motion of the machine. There are very few people who know how to use this machine today as it takes a long time to learn to operate with precision and accuracy.
