This item is made to order. Please allow up to two weeks for delivery. Each patch may vary slightly from what is pictured due to the nature of being a one of a kind item.
Each piece is created using the same hand operated vintage chain stitch machines that were used to create traditional western wear. While most embroidery today is computerized and mass produced, the work done on these vintage machines is hand done and made one piece at time. A handle below the machine is used to control the direction, so you are essentially “drawing” with the handle, while directing your fabric above and controlling the speed with your foot.
