Merrow on display at the Windham Textile Museum


Our history, which dates back to 1838, is being partially profiled in CT through December 28th.

We're still working on what machines to display, but it's possible that the rare 'Fascinator' and one of the worlds first overlock sewing machines could make an appearance.

Merrow has manufactured sewing machines since 1838 and remains one of the most interesting companies in the textile space

I wish I lived back there. I've posted this on my blog and also at the Yahoo Group called FitSnobs so that all of the members are aware of it. I'm hoping that those in the area will attend and get back to the group about it.

on saturday I dropped our machines off ... it was worth it, Michelle & co. have done a great job.

I'd hope that schools would try and connect with it. There is a great story in that room which in many ways is quite relevant today.
