What is the difference between Chainstitch Embrodery and Digital Embroidery?
Chainstitch Embroidery is a traditional and manual technique that involves creating a series of looped stitches that resemble chains. Chainstitch embroidery offers more flexibility in terms of design and stitch variations. It allows for thicker and more textured stitches, giving a distinct look and feel to the final embroidery. Since it is a manual technique, chainstitch embroidery often reflects the craftsmanship and artistic skill of the embroiderer. It can convey a sense of handcrafted uniqueness and authenticity Chainstitch embroidery is a relatively slower process compared digital embroidery. It requires a skilled artisan to run the machine.
Digital embroidery, also known as computerized embroidery or machine embroidery, involves using computer-controlled embroidery machines to stitch designs onto fabric. The design is created using embroidery software and then loaded into the embroidery machine. The machine automatically stitches the design onto the fabric according to the programmed instructions. All though digital embroidery is faster, it lacks any artistic feel and often looks flat compared to the look and feel of Chainstitch embroidery.

How do I clean and take care of Chainstitch Embroidery?
The best way is to dry clean your Chainstitch garment. Alternatively, you can hand wash Chainstitch clothing to minimize stress on the delicate work. Fill a basin or sink with lukewarm water and use a mild detergent specifically designed for delicate fabrics. Gently swirl the garment in the water, avoiding any rough agitation. Rinse thoroughly.
Do not soak the garment for an extended period, as this can weaken the stitching. Limit the time the garment spends in water to prevent any damage. After washing, carefully remove excess water by gently squeezing or rolling the garment in a towel. Avoid wringing or twisting the fabric, as it can distort the Chainstitching. Lay the clothing flat on a clean, dry towel or hang it on a padded hanger to air dry. Avoid direct sunlight or heat sources, as they can fade colors and damage the fabric.
If necessary, iron your Chainstitch clothing on the reverse side using a low to medium heat setting. Place a thin cloth or pressing cloth over the chainstitch area to protect it from direct heat. Avoid ironing directly on the Chainstitching, as it can flatten or distort the stitches.
When not in use, store your Chainstitch clothing in a clean, dry place. Avoid folding or hanging the garment in a way that puts stress on the Chainstitching. If you're hanging it, use a padded hanger to distribute the weight and prevent stretching.
If you notice any loose or damaged Chainstitch threads, it's best to repair it promptly to prevent further damage. If you need help with repairs please contact us HERE we’d be happy to help.
