The Merrow 18E was is world's best crochet sewing machine. Designed in 1899, Merrow has perfected the mechanics of the 18-E for more than a century. This machine is a world-class performer whose stitch rivals those made by hand, yet it sews at production level speeds.
The Merrow 18E sews a 3/8" - 1/2" flat crochet stitch on blanket and garment edges. It runs at speeds up to 1400 SPM, yet produces a stitch that rivals any sewn by hand in craftsmanship and uniformity. The 18E is a single needle, single thread machine that sews at a standard 4 SPI, but can be adjusted to sew at a remarkable 10 SPI.
The 18E runs at nearly 1500 stitches per minute, yet sews a stitch of such distinction that it is sure to compliment even the highest quality blankets and garments. Like all Merrow machines, the 18E is designed and built to last for decades, providing operators with thousands of hours of uninterrupted service.
