    White Rotary Chain Stitch?

    My White Family Rotary came with a "Use for Chain Stitch Only" plate. It fits perfectly. What I've researched shows no connection between this machine and chain stitching. Any wise folks out there know of one?

    I know there is a thing called a "spider" that can be attached to some machines to convert them into a chain- stitch machine. It's possible that you change out the plate to cover the feed dogs when you do a chain stitch. Do you have any pictures or other attachments you're curious about?

    To chain stitch on a White Rotary you need the plate that you have and a spider. The spider replaces the lock stitch hook. The second picture shows the finger that makes it chain.

    This is SO cool! My machine is having enough trouble lockstitching that the thought of a decorative chain stitch appeals to me. How do I acquire such a "spider"?

    Keep an eye on eBay, thrift shops, rummage sales, etc. I found mine in a box of attachments.

    I hope you have good Luck finding one. I think the search is half the fun.
