The Domestic Sewing Machine Company was founded in 1864 by the Americans William A Mack and NS Perkins. For a long time, theirs was the only firm to make sewing machines with vibrating shuttles for use in the home as well as the workplace. Their machines were designed with a very high arm, with the stitch-length adjuster situated just behind, so that the operator could not make an accidental stitch. This design aspect in particular was copied by many other firms. In 1924, the Domestic Company was purchased by the White Sewing Machine Company.
