Beit Carriers and Stay Cbalos

Stay chains (sometimes called French tacks)
and belt loops, normally time-consuming

hand-worked detail finishes, can now be
quickly made by machine. To produce a

chain, place the first stitch in the fabric. Stitch
off fabric and continue stitching until a suffi­

chain through emibroidery or darning needle
and tack to garment or lining. A stitch length
setting of 12 is recommended.

is no longer a chore when tucks are

chalnstitched. Simply unlock the last loop of
the chain formed on the unde.»-side of the tuck
and puli out the stitching.
