VINTAGE UNION SPECIAL SEWING MACHINE FOR DENIM - MADE IN GERMANY

vintage 1950s Union Special chainstitching machine and are hemming the jeans exactly like how they used to be hemmed and SHOULD be hemmed. With a chainstitch, your hem will form a beautiful roping effect after time due to the opposite pull of denim during washing/shrinking.

I remember those sewing machines when I was a kid, my grandma had one, god bless her. I would prefer a newer sewing machine now, been sewing for over 30 years a bit of a sewing machine expert now.
