The First Stitches with the Willcox and Gibbs Automatic

Today we had the moment of truth.  It was great fun, because my brother in law, who found the machine in a charity shop some months ago, arrived last night and is staying with us at the moment.

The stitches are really even.  I have the gauge set at 12 stitches per inch.

This is the back of the work.  It is a single thread chain stitch, with the loops on the back.  I'm looking forward to trying it out with different threads and using it for decorative stitching.


  1. I suspect judging from those stitches, it would put many of todays machines' to shame. What a lovely find :-)

  2. Looks Great! And up and running!
    Have a great weekend!
    I love checking in on your blog!
    Take care,
