Application flled April 29, 1919. Serial No. 293.545.
To all whom it may r-onl'rrn Be it known that we. (li-zonor: V. Pam: and CONRAD T. Nnrrznn,ritizem ol' the l'nlled States, residing at Dallas. in the county of Dallas and Slate of Texas. have invented certain new and useful lnnn'ovenients HI Needles for liillltl-lilllllltlltltl and Similar Work, of which the follmving is a specification.
Our invention relates to lllllll'tH'tlllt'lliH in needles and refers partieularli todhut class of hand needles used for embronlering or ornamental needlework and to the novel arrangeinent and eonstruetion ol" sllelr a needle.
It is the principal n ljttlui our invention to provide a needle of this type \\l|l('ll is peculiarly adapted to eniln-oulery, ornamental needle work. ele.,on account of the rapidity and ease with which sueh work can be accomplished. I I
Another object of our invention hes in the simplicity of the needle and its llNXPtllHH'e manufacture.
Our invention will be more fully under- 'zfi stood from the following description taken 7 in connection with the aeromprmying draw in formingpart hereof, lll whichi ure 1 is a side elevational view of a need e embodying our invention.
2 is a similar View with the gage of the needle removed.
Fig; 3 is a side elevational view of the 8' ig. 4 is a cross sectional view taken on line 44 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 5 is a top view of the needle, and
. ig. 6 is a vertical seetiona] new, art of the needle broken away, showing tho'nnunn-r of operation. I
' 0 Referring to the drawings, the body 1 of the needle is constructed preferably of metal and is tubular or hollow, the portion constitutin the handle extending outwardly from the ollow portion into flanges 2-2 and 4 the ends 3'3 of the flanges are bent at right angles to the body of the needle. B v re erence'to Fig. 4 of the drawings it Will be noted that the sides or flam es 22 do not come entirelv together, but leave a slit or o ening 4 for the threadinlg or passage of t 7 thread 5 into the channe G of the needle.
The manner of threadin the needle is illustrated in Fig. 2, the t and being passed throu h the eye 7 and stretched?! pulled slight y to force it into the channel 6.
member having Arranged to slide over the body 1 of the needle is a eoinplemenlal piece. or gage 8. This gage has flanges 1 9'similar to the flanges '.'-2 on the body of the needle. and the gage is similarly channeled or slit to allow of the passage. of the thread 5. A small projection 10 formed in one piece with the gage 8 is adapted to register with the notches 11 on the lips 33 of the flanges 22.
The forward end of this gage is flared ontwardly as at 12 so that as the needle is pushed through the cloth 13 the. end 12 of the gage will allow the point of the needle to advance in the cloth only.so far, depending upon'n'hieh of the notches 11 is regis tered with projeetion 10.
The operation of the needle is simple. It is threaded in the manner explained above and the point pushed through the cloth on the design to be worked and the needle withdrawn. When the needle is pulled back a loop is formed. This loop can be shortened or lengthened as desired, it being held in place by the texture of the cloth. The lengtlu-ningor shortening of the loop ives the design such as flowers, ettz, a raiser a pearanee on the cloth opposite the needle. the design toward the needle being more or less flat. These loops can be trimmed otl' giving the French chenille effect. and when the 100) is short and left uncut the French knot etleet is obtained. A short loop will also give the effect of head work.
l-laving thus described the nature and objects of our invent ion, what we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is- 1. A needle for hand embroidery and the like, comprising a tubular body pointed at ne end and open at one body having a flange projecting laterally therefrom at with a series of notches, and a tubular gage.
an opening extending longitudinally thereof, said gage member being slidable on the tubular body of the. needle and adapted to engage the notches of the tubular body.
2. A needlefor hand embroidery and the in the flange like, comprising a tubular body inted at one end and open at one side, said tubular body having a flange projectin laterally therefrom a at side, said tubular said opening and provided provided with a projecting part stud open an rovided with a sons of notches, iiiifi a tubular gage lit) member having an opening extending longitudinally thereof with spaced longitudinal flanges projecting therefrom at said opening, said last mentioned flanges being disposed -at opposite sides of the lateral flange of the body, and one of saidflanges of the gage fitting against one side of the flange of the tubular body, and having a part projecting above the flange of the tnnilar body and adapted to engage the notches therein.
3. A device, for hand embroidery and the like, comprising a tubular body eonstitnting a needle and handle. the tubular body being open along one side substantially throngln out its length and having oppositely disposed flanges on the handle and projecting laterally therefrom at said opening, said flanges serving as a guide for entering the thread into the longitudinal opening of the tubular body.
4. A needle for hand embroidery and the like, comprising a tubular body pointed at one end. the tnlnilar body being open al ng one side and having spared oppositely disposed flanges projecting from the body at said opening, said flanges having outer marginal portions bent ontn'ardlyainl a tubular gage member having, an opening extending longitudinally thereof and spaced flanges projecting laterally from the same at the said opening, the guard being slidable on the tubular body with the flanges of the guard engaging the outer face of opposite. flanges of the. body beneath the outwardly bent outer marginal portions of the flanges of the body, the outwardly bent marginal portions of one of the flanges of the body being provided with a series of notches, and one flange of the gage member being provided with a part projecting above the outwardly bent marginal portions of the flanges of the tubular body and adapted to engage the notches in said ont\\'ardly bent marginal portion.
.7. A needle for hand embroidery and the like, comprising a tubular metal body pointed at one end and opetrat' one side, said body having a flange projecting laterally therefrom at said opening. and a tubular sheet metal gage member having an opening extending longitudinally thereof and slidable on the tubular needle body, said gage memher being provided with an outwardly flared lower end portion to engage the work.
ti. needle for hand embroidery and the like, comprising a tubular body pointed at one end, the ln ailar body being open at one side and having oppositely disposed flanges projecting lateral] from the body at said opening, and a tn ular age member open along one side and slide le on the tubular body.
T. A needle for hand embroidery and the like, romprisin a tubular body pointed at one end. the to nilar may being open at one side and having a flange projecting laterally therefrom at said opening, the flange being provided with a series of notches, and a. gage member opcn'along one side and slid able on the tubular body, said gage member being provided with a part adapted to engage the notches in the said flange.
8. needle for hand embroidery and the like. formed from a piece of sheet metal bent upon itself to provide a main tubular thread receiving part and a trough like part at one side thereof.
El. needle for hand embroidery and the like. eomprising a tubular body pointed at one end, the tubular body being open at one side and having a flange projecting laterally therefrom at the said opening, and a tubular gage member open along one side and slidable on the tubular needle body, one of said parts being provided with a series of notches and the other part provided with a projection adapted to engage the notches of the lirst mentioned part.
10. needle for hand embroidery and the like. formed from a piece of sheet metal folded upon itself to provide a main tubular thread receiving body part. open at one side and provided with flanges extending laterally therefrom at said opening, in combination with a gage foiined from a piece of .sheet metal and having a tubular part open at one side and with flanges projecting latirally therefrom at the opening, the gage being slidable on the first mentioned art.
In testimony whereof we have signedhmr names to this specification.
