Embroidery Techniques
Basic stitches of early work such as chain, blanket, running, satin and cross stitch are still used. Examples survive from ancient Egypt, the Iron Age in Northern Europe and Zhou Dynasty China. Machine embroidery dates from the Industrial Revolution era and looks like hand work, especially chain stitch. Machine satin and hemming stitches that rely on multiple threads resemble hand embroidery only in appearance, but not in their construction.

 Machine chain stitch from China in early 2000s.

 Images or mottos are embroidered onto new garments or fabric items, supplied for many purposes. Customers’ items are personalised too.

 “I’ve just done 9 months inside” bib in a Baby Set.
