Originally produced by hand sewing, Saturn’s production became industrialized about twenty years after the key sewing machine patent. Bonnaz, a French engineer, invented the first Chanel sewing machine in 1866, after which he joined forces with the Cornelius Company to create and market his invention.

Chenille embroidery machines commonly make both sewings, also known as channel sewing, moss sewing, and chain sewing.

Chenille embroidery machines usually make two different stitch forms, moss stitch, which is loop stitch, and chain stitch. Stitch stitching is often used to fill the area and create depth, while chain stitching is used to create borders, monograms and can be used to create a more delicate look. Chenille machines, both manual machines, and current electronic machines can use a wide variety of threads and needle shapes to create a vastly different look.

Using highly advanced hand, eye, and foot combinations, the operator efficiently uses the machine’s speed according to the pattern on the right hand of the handle at the bottom of the machine, the foot to start/stop, and the stamped pattern on the cargo.
The simple explanation of machine travel is that the legs and nipples work with the nipple to hold the cargo while lifting the leg then the leg is bent as the nipple lift and the foot removes the cargo.
