Merrow Crochet machines remain the industry standard although we can now supply other similar machines that achieve the same results. The crochet stitch forms a beautiful plain edge finish on a wide variety of goods. Merrow's cam-driven machines produce a quality uniform stitch every time.
With the Merrow crochet machine you can finish a variety of articles with a decorative or retentive covering edge. Crochet machines can be configured to produce a rolled (18-A) or flat (18-E) edge, a two-thread stitch for additional colour and contrast (17-F & 15-CA-1), and a single- or double-course edge (15-CA-1).

The original Singer 138K1 is still considered by many to be give the best finish for blankets and other heavy applications where the maximum visual impact is required. The 138K1 gives a 5/8" maximum width of stitch and length of 1/2".

Reconditioned examples of this unique machine are available and we can supply spare parts for 138K1 which we engineer ourselves.

We are proud to present the New Reach range of decorative crochet shell edge machines, badge overlock and blanket whippers.

The range is comprehensive as the photos of some samples of the kind of work they produce show.

IDL-38 is made in various specific style for producing shell stitch edge finish of different sizes, and to produce any one of the three different combinations of finishes which include 1 or 4 or 8 stitch.

We would be happy to quote you for any blanket or shell edge crochet machine to suit your requirements.
