Last year we were asked to participate in the set development. Merrow offered the HBO production our line of Crochet sewing machines.
Next thing you know the show is a runaway success.... to point out the obvious, we believe that the critics were heavily influenced by the quality of the stitching.
Here are some pics, followed by a letter from the John Adams show
I am attaching some pictures here of an exterior sceneof the Boston streets draped for a funeral of theBoston Massacre victims. You cannot see the work ofyour machine, but we edged all of the wool draped onthe buildings with the blanket-stitch Merrow. I havealso included an interior shot of the Adams'children's bedroom. The wool blankets got the Merrowtreatment as well. I am afraid I do not have any shotsthat are close up enough to see the stitch work, butat least you know it is there!Thank you for your compliments, I have heard from manypeople how good it looks (and how good it is!),unfortunately I do not have HBO available where I amnow, so I will have to wait for it's arrival on DVD.All the best, I am sure I will be contacting yourcompany again for sewing needs!Regards,Helen Rasmussendraper for "John Adams"
We are always grateful for the opportunity to participate in these types of projects (keep your eyes peeled for Merrow and Ugly Betty...), for more information about how to get a 'loaner' for some on or off screen work send us an email.
