The Singer History Tidbit

Antique Singer Sewing machine
Singer was first established as I. M. Singer & Company in 1851 by Isaac Merritt Singer with New York lawyer Edward Clark. Best known for its sewing machines.

It was renamed Singer Manufacturing Company in 1865, then The Singer Company in 1963. It is currently based in La Vergne, Tennessee near Nashville.

Its first large factory for mass production was built in Elizabeth, New Jersey in 1863.

Since 1851, the name Singer has been synonymous with sewing. The spirit of practical design and creative innovation that characterized the company at its beginning continues today as we develop products for every level of sewing. We have celebrated many firsts, including the world’s first zig-zag machine, the first electronic machines and we now proudly produce the world’s most advanced home sewing and embroidery machine. From home décor and clothing construction to embroidery and quilting, SINGER® is dedicated to help people express themselves through sewing.
