The Merrow Purl Stitching Machine (or merrowing machine) sews a narrow rolled hem on light to mid-weight fabrics. It can be ruffled to create a ‘lettuce edge’ look as well. Famous for it’s accuracy, the Merrow Purl edge is unparalleled in the business

The Advantage of the MG-2DNR-1

Merrow has refined the design of it’s signature decorative edging machine over the past 70 years. Designers around the world use the Merrow Purl Machine to sew delicate rolled hems on wedding dresses, lingerie, evening wear and home decor. Built to run at 5500RPM the MG-2DNR-1 will add an unmatched edge at high speed to lightweight and medium weight fabrics.


WHY it’s better

The stitch itself is noticably better than imitation purl stitches. A Merrow purl stitch is tighter, it hangs straight on delicates, it appears almost as an extension of the material on which it’s sewn. A Merrow purl stitch is perhaps the most elegant stitch in the world.

HOW it’s better

The precision of the MG-2DNR-1 is literally unmatched in the sewing machine world. Because of the unique cam drive and the hand crafted looper carrier and needle plate, this Merrow Machine sews a more delicate edge than any other sewing machine manufactured today. At high speed the machine maintains the critical tolerances between needle, needle plate and looper, allowing the product to look beautiful every time.

WHERE it’s used

Often used in garment factories, sample rooms and custom tailor shops, this machine is now finding it’s way into high-end cottage industries and low volume, high value production facilities.

Merrow Machine Advantages

Since 1838 Merrow has manufactured the world’s best overlock sewing machines. A Merrow Machine is built to sew a more precise stitch and operate longer than any other competitive sewing machine in its class. Merrow Machines are engineered and manufactured more carefully, designed to last decades, and supported with a network of 156 agents in 65 countries. The Merrow Sewing Machine is The Most PRECISE and TOUGHEST sewing machine manufactured in the world

Overlock stitching was invented by the Merrow Machine Company in 1881. Merrow’s original three-thread overedge sewing machine is the forerunner of contemporary overlocking machines. Over time, the Merrow Machine Company pioneered the design of new machines to create a variety of overlock stitches, such as two, and four-thread sergers, the one-thread butted seam, and the cutterless emblem edger. Today Two- and three-thread formations are also known as “merrowing”.

In 2010 Merrow Machines are engineered and built in Fall River, MA.


Quality of Materials
Our parts and machines are handcrafted and handbuilt 

Cams NOT pistons — Proprietary Cam Technology – Different from all other Sewing Machines
We’re the only manufacturer in the world building Cam-driven sewing machines that stand up to heavy use. Merrow’s Cam-driven machines produces a superior quality stitch. Using sophisticated 5-axis computerized milling machines, we’ve succeeded in developing proprietary high-technology components offering faster, quieter, operation and remarkable durability. 

Merrow Cams are Machined to Exacting Dimensions 
Tolerances are held to .001: the tightest in the industry. They have been designed to operate continuously between 2200 and 5500 RPM. Merrow Cams allow a Merrow Machine to create a perfect stitch while ensuring that the sewing machine will last a lifetime. 

Special consideration should be paid to the intricacies of Merrow’s Cam Technology:

  1. The Cam groove width and the final surface finish of the Cam groove are created with proprietary manufacturing technology that allows all sides of Merrow’s Cam to have an equal, highly polished and uniform steel surface, this results in an approximate coefficient of friction, when lubricated, of .06 or lower.
  2. Cam gear teeth are cut to a unique specifications with the sides of each tooth shaved to create a proprietary profile. This reduces heat when running.
  3. Hardness and metallurgy of the Cams are continuously modified, improving the durability of the Cam. The Benchmark for the durability of a Merrow Cam in continuous operation is more than 30 years of operation without failure.

Sew thousands of different Material Types 
Woven Fabric, Knit Fabric, Terry Towel, Denim, Technical Textiles AND Nonwovens. While the machines sew exceptionally on mid-weight woven fabrics, it performs well on a huge number of materials from vulcanized rubber to fiberglass to insulation. 

With more than 645 different needle plates and feed dogs, we can modify the sitch to accomodate more demanding fabrics
