I was wondering if there is way to do chain stitching kinda like the cardinals jerseys by hand or if the only way to achieve this is by a special machine? Also if it can be done by hand what type of thread do you use? Also if anyone had any tutorials if it can be achieved?

Thanks

The embroidery like the Cards use is done with special machines. New, modern machines do what that call a chain stitch, but it's nothing like the stuff like the Cards have. Most chain alphabets now sew out the text by sewing a fill that is digitized to sew out little triangles in a line and it will sew out that way until it fills the area of the design. It looks ok,but it the tread doesn't sit as high has the old way and it's much cleaner sew out. I've never digitized a logo to use it, but I have an alphabet that I can send you a sample of some text so you can see how it sews out and how it would be done.

What embroidery format do you use? That way I know what format to save the file in.

Sorry have not got back with you sooner, I've been really busy. I don't use any embroidery programs we send it all out. Will any vector programs open any of it up? I think I kinda know what you are talking about. I basically was just wondering if the style the Cards use could be achieved by hand. I'm sure it would take a while I've been wanting to do a little side project.

There's an article on it here. They show the difference between the old and new style of chain stitching along with a drawing of how you would do it by hand. They also have drawings on wikipedia of different variations of how to do it. Don't envy you, never tried it but it looks like it would take FOREVER.
