Dritz Sewing, Crafting, & Quilting Supplies

Our History

In the 1920s, John Dritz & Sons was a family business that sold beaded handbags in New York City. Over the years, John Dritz & Sons also developed innovative sewing notions and gadgets, such as seam rippers, zippers and electric scissors.

In 1969, the Dritz family sold the business; in the next 20 years it changed hands again. In 1988 it was acquired by the Prym family of Germany and named the Prym-Dritz Corporation. In 2005, the Prym-Dritz Corporation changed its name to Prym Consumer USA, positioning Dritz as the key brand in its portfolio of creative products.
