Legacy Sewing Companies
(Originally published in SCHMETZ Inspired to SEW #94, October 2021. Written by Rita Farro.) There are many famous trios: The Three Musketeers; Peter, Paul, and Mary; the Three Stooges; Destiny’s Child. And if you’re a fan of Creole cooking, you are familiar with that culinary holy trinity: onions, bell peppers, and celery. But no place in history or pop culture has a more powerful, essential trinity, than the world of sewing. If you love to sew, your beloved trinity is sewing machine, needle, and thread. The truth is, if you don’t have ALL THREE elements, you cannot sew even a single stitch. They rely on each other. The shocking thing is that for over 100 years, three legacy companies have been producing sewing machines, thread, and needles. Although each company operates completely independent from one another, all three companies are completely reliant on each other’s product.
