Did you know John Lennon loved his PFAFF sewing machine?

Hello to all our Triumph Needle Company followers!

Today, we’re taking a fascinating journey into the life of an unexpected sewing enthusiast—John Lennon. Yes, you read that correctly. The iconic Beatles member was a passionate patron of sewing and Pfaff sewing machines, a pastime that goes beyond the typical image of the rockstar. Lennon’s love for this craft was lifelong, proving that the art of sewing is boundless and all-inclusive!

The Triumph Needle Company Ltd., based in Leicester, shares this deep passion for sewing, offering a vast range of commercial and domestic sewing machines. Like Lennon, we believe in the power of sewing as a form of self-expression and creativity.

Lennon’s Sewing Legacy

John’s initiation into the world of sewing came from his mother, Julia Lennon, a talented seamstress. Through her, he learned the craft, and as he grew, his love for sewing blossomed into an intrinsic part of his life. Lennon’s love for sewing extended into various facets of his life, reflected in the clothes he crafted for his family, repairs he undertook, and the fabric art he created. He even wrote a song titled “I’m Sew Tired,” a cheeky nod to his sewing enthusiasm.

Pfaff Machines: Lennon’s Chosen Companions

For his sewing journey, Lennon chose none other than the esteemed Pfaff sewing machines. His first Pfaff acquisition was the model 1222, purchased in 1964. Subsequently, his collection expanded to include models 130, 137, and 147, frequently highlighted in his photographs and interviews. These machines were not merely tools for Lennon; they were sources of joy and channels for his artistic expression.

The Triumph Needle Company Connection

Like Lennon, Triumph Needle Company Ltd is deeply committed to the art of sewing. We offer a diverse range of both commercial and domestic sewing machines, available for the public to try in our Leicester-based showroom. And, like Lennon’s dedication to repair and create, we too provide comprehensive care for your machines with our fully-equipped workshop, capable of restoring even the oldest sewing machines back to their prime.

Lennon’s Venture into Fashion: The Apple Boutique

In 1971, Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, launched a retail venture—The Apple Boutique in London. The boutique retailed clothes that the couple designed, along with unique pieces crafted by Lennon himself. Despite the store’s short life due to financial issues, Lennon’s dream of creating and sharing the love for sewing continued to thrive. He kept on sewing and even shared his knowledge with friends and family through lessons.

Final Thoughts

John Lennon’s love for sewing, powered by his trusty Pfaff machines, is an inspiring testament to the joy and fulfilment that sewing can bring. His story is a call to everyone to explore the beauty and creativity that can spring forth from a needle, some thread, and a spark of imagination. At Triumph Needle Company Ltd, we embrace this vision wholeheartedly and invite you all to share in this magical journey of sewing with us.

Stay tuned for more inspiring stories, and as always, happy stitching!
