June 13th National Sewing Machine Day

Just think what life would be like without the invention of the sewing machine. Before the 1830’s sewing was done by hand, requiring a great deal of effort and time. The credit often falls to Elias Howe who patented his invention in the Untied States in 1846, he began sales in 1851. However, the first sewing machine was actually invented by Walter Hunt in 1832 in Europe. Either way, breaking that sewing machine out of you attic or closet and start sewing again, it will save you a lot of money and you might even have fun using it.
