The Singer brand of sewing machines was founded in 1851 by Isaac Merritt Singer and Edward Clark. It was originally called the I.M. Singer & Co., but the name changed to the Singer Manufacturing Company in 1865. In 1963 the name again changed to the final one, The Singer Company.
The Singer company makes sewing machines, embroidery machines, and sergers. They also manufacture irons and steam machines that help make finishing projects easier.
