Button-Hole Sewing Machine One Thread

My invention is applicable to what is called the “Union Button-hole-stitching Machine,” manufactured by the Union Button-Hole and Embroidery Machine Company” of Boston, Massachusetts and consists in a new form and construction of the “under needle and looper” used in said machine...

... There are two kinds of said machines constructed termed “narrow-gauge" and “broad-gauge' machines. The distinction is that the “broad-gauge" machine stitches farther into the cloth around the button-hole, as some classes of goods and garments require a deeper and firmer stitch than others. The broad-gauge machine requires more space be tween the the needle and looper-points a and b than the narrow gauge requires, consequently, by the old method of constructing these parts in one inseparable piece, there have to be two kinds, corresponding to the two gauges of machines. In practical use the under needle is sometimes bro ken in consequence of the upper needle's getting sprung, or improperly set and coming in contact with the under needle. When such accident happens to the old form of under needle now in use, it render's useless the looper also, they being inseparable, and an entire new part has to be supplied. Now, my improvement, as shown in figs. 2 and 3, is designed to obviate, first, the necessity of having two kinds of under needle and looper, adapted, respectively, to narrow and broad-gauge machines and, secondly, the necessity of throwing away the whole part when the needle-point at only is broken...

... What I claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is an under needle and looper, constructed in separate pieces and parts, said pieces and parts being attached and adjusted to each other, substantially in the manner and for the purposes described.

Sewing Machine Needle for Embroidering

My invention relates to the production of an embroidery-stitch in which a separate thread, which does not pass through the cloth or fabric to be embroidered, is used as the embroidery-thread and is retained in place upon the surface of the fabric by threads, which produce an ordinary sewing stitch. It is alike applicable to single and to double thread sewing machines.
