Sewing machines are one of the great inventions credited with transforming the economies of global societies. In 1851 that Isaac Merritt Singer, after studying a poorly working example, spent $40 and 11 days to produce a practical sewing machine that used an top to bottom mechanism. The first Singer sewing machine was introduced on the market across the United States that same year and the company became the primary manufacturer and seller of sewing machines within a couple of years.

Initially, sewing machines were manufactured for garment factory production lines. The commercial sewing machines are often designed to perform a specific sewing function including embroidery or sewing straight stitches. Machines with some other functions are used to complete garments in a production line.

Marketing sewing machines to those didn't begin until 1889, permitting women to have the means to create clothing for his or her family without the labor-intensive hand stitching. The domestic sewing machine used in the home is manufactured to perform many tasks from sewing straight or zigzag stitches and the creation of buttonholes, as well as stitching buttons onto the piece of clothing.

Sewing machines happen to be mass produced worldwide for more than two-hundred years. As a result, the wide selection of styles and manufacturers make antique sewing machines a well liked collectible. Some of the most favorite antique machines include working miniatures that were salesmen's samples that doubled as child's sewing machines tailored for use by young girls, since they were expected to learn to sew.

All modern sewing machines operated with electricity, while their predecessors were powered by way of a hand crank or possibly a foot pedal operation known as the treadle. All sewing machines feature mechanical parts, however today a sewing machine that is not computerized, referred to as a mechanical sewing machine. Electronic sewing machines sew faster and smoother while giving an even better stitch. Computerized sewing machines are capable of perform many standard functions with the home seamstress more efficiently and make embroidering a simple task. The price for basic, mechanical sewing machines with the home starts at $70; added features push prices up to $1,200. Computerized sewing machine pricing can start around $400 with the home machines, with top-of-the-line models running all the way to $5,000.

Most sewing machines are very well built and will last for many years with just one or two parts needing replacement. Lots of antique sewing machines are in operation, but parts can be hard to find if the clients are no longer in business. Typically, the producer is the best location for sewing machine parts, but there are many companies specializing in sewing machine part replacements.
