History of Janome Sewing Machines
The company’s history goes back to 1867, when William Barker and Andrew J Clark started producing a machine they called the New England Single Thread Hand Sewing Machine in Orange, Massachusetts.
They later added production of what they called the Home Shuttle.
The company was named New Home, and the company continued to produce sewing machines until 1960 when it was purchased by a Japanese company, the Janome Sewing Machine Company of Tokyo, Japan.
The Janome Company started producing sewing machines that had a round metal bobbin system, instead of the elongated shuttle that had been traditionally used up until that time.
Thinking that the new round bobbins looked like snake eyes, they named the company Janome (pronounced Ja-NO-me), which means “eye of the snake”.
Janome Sewing Machines Today
Unlike many of the other sewing machine companies, Janome remains an independent company and produces its own sewing machines. It has sewing divisions in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
In addition to its high tech machines, Janome also produces such innovative products as high precision robots! The company is truly a step ahead of many other sewing machine companies.
