These machines have been sitting around for a while waiting to be cleaned and restored. They are the Cornely LTG, Cornely K, and the Singer 114w103 single thread chain-stitch embroidery machine that use a freehand crank below the machine to direct the motion of the stitch using the universal feed ring. The LTG is a twin needle with a few more applications than the other two machines.

Back in the day, these types of machines were used to stitch names onto clothing such as handkerchiefs and work shirts. They were also used to stitch designs on western clothing as well as many concert outfits for people such as Jimmy Page.

Cornely was the company that invented the first freehand embroidery universal feed sewing machine. Both of my Cornely machines date back from the 1870′s.
