By 1869 they were producing lockstitch, overseaming and button hole machines and in 1873 the American Buttonhole and Overseaming Company.
The company were still listing patents in 1882 as The American Buttonhole, Overseaming and Sewing Machine Company of Pennsylvania. Then they became the American B-HO & Sewing Machine Co. and finally they changed to The American Sewing Machine Co.
The American Sewing Machine Co
It was not long before the American Sewing Machine Co produced a normal sewing machine called the New American Sewing Machine.
The American Buttonhole & Sewing Machine Co
The American Sewing Machine Co produced a range of attractive and practical sewing machines right up until the later part of the Victorian period. Their range included the Improved American and the High-Arm American, industrial, boot and leather machines. My personal joy is the New American Model 6 hand crank. These are quite rare as most of the machines were treadle not hand.

The American Sewing Machine Co exported to Europe and sold machines through agents such as Newton Wilson in London. Apparently the Company had their own offices and storage at Queen Victoria Street, London.

What is a dream on the American Sewing Machine model 6 is the fact that they used a shuttle but it took a round bobbin. It was a sort of mix between two cultures the best of both and it worked a treat. People who have used the American Sewing Machine say it sewed a near perfect seam.
An American Sewing Machine still a looker even with hardly any gold left. Imagine what it would have looked like when new.
You have to be a bit careful as there were several companies using the American on their sewing machines such as Goodrich, National, Weir and New Home. Several were available from the giant Sears mail order company of North America. Even James Weir advertised one of his models as the American Hand Sewing Machine.
