History of Janome Sewing Machine Company
It All Started with New Home
In the year 1860, William Barker and Andrew J. Clark embarked on a journey that would make a mark in the sewing machine industry. They started crafting the “New England Single Thread Hand Sewing Machine” in the town of Orange, Massachusetts. This venture blossomed over the next two decades, with the New England machine and the “Home Shuttle” emerging as their flagship products.
By 1882, a significant change occurred. The company transformed, adopting the name New Home, which was inspired by a blend of their two main products’ names: New England and Home Shuttle. This name, New Home, became a staple in the industry for nearly a hundred years.
Then, in 1960, a landmark event took place, 93 years after Barker and Clark’s initial collaboration. The New Home company and its celebrated brand were acquired by Janome Sewing Machine Company, based in Tokyo, Japan.
For those interested in diving deeper into the rich early history of this company, a visit to The International Sewing Machine Collectors’ Society website is recommended. There, you can find an enlightening article titled “The Men Behind New Home”, which offers more detailed insights.
The Beginning of Janome
The name “Janome,” pronounced “Ja-NO-me” in Japanese, translates to “eye of the snake.” This unique name was coined in the 1920s, inspired by a revolutionary change in sewing machine technology. Yosaku Ose, a pioneering figure in Japanese sewing manufacturing, shifted from the conventional long shuttle to a round metal bobbin system. This new design reminded the Japanese of a snake’s eye, giving birth to the brand name Janome.
Since then, Janome has been at the forefront of innovation in the sewing industry. The company has expanded globally, establishing sewing divisions across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Additionally, Janome has agents in Africa, Central and South America, and throughout the Pacific Rim of Asia. Beyond sewing machines, Janome’s expertise in manufacturing has also positioned it as a world leader in high-precision robots.
In 1979, Janome introduced another groundbreaking innovation: the world’s first programmable, computer sewing machine, the MEMORY 7. Continuing this trend of technological advancement, Janome’s Memory Craft computer models have become renowned for their user-friendly interface and exceptionally precise stitch results. For those interested in the latest offerings, the Horizon Memory Craft 15000 and the newest embroidery software products from Janome are definitely worth exploring.
