Modern chainstitch embroidery patches, accessories, and home goods hand cranked on a vintage chainstitch embroidery machine



Hi, I'm Ann Leachman. I make modern chainstitch embroidery patches, clothing and home goods. I use a vintage chainstitch embroidery machine from the 1920s to make each piece. I love using a machine with so much history and often daydream about all the amazing things the previous owners used this machine to create.

So much of what's created today is mass produced. The craft is taken out of it, and the quality suffers. I'm on a mission to bring back the handcraft in the items you own. I believe that the clothing you wear and the items you surround yourself with should be meaningful to you. You have your own unique style. You appreciate things that are well made. You love owning something that no one else has.

Everything I make is hand cranked one at a time. Because of the handmade nature of the process, no two pieces are exactly alike. These tiny differences add charm to the pieces, and you can be sure you're getting something that is literally one of a kind.
