The applications commith

For eons over at Merrow HQ we've lamented how rarely we communicate the number of really cool things we can sew. SOP is that a customer sends us some interesting (and challenging...) fabric and we build a machine for it and that's that.

Over the past couple of years we've tried different ways of managing this type of information. There was even a very short lived 'let's publish it to the blog...'  Fat lot of good that did.

 Well - a new years resolution around here was to get this done, and get it done right.

 The Creative Director has decided that it's happening in January. We think this motivation is also tied to his --probably much shorter lived effort to get back in shape-- but no one is going to complain.

 So what's it look like:

 How about this
 or this
 or maybe this
 and some of this


 and a little more of this

MILITARY SEWING AND SEAMING (some nomex flight suits etc.. )

(there are 8 more to come... stay tuned)

Fact is that  we make machines that sew really hard, really beautiful, and sometime just plain awesome applications. And finally after a long long wait, we're going to be able to share some of these things with the world.

Enjoy - let us know what you think
