June 12 – Sewing Machine Day

Sewing Machine Day celebrates a very important invention ----- the sewing machine. The first sewing machines were made in France in the 1830s. It wasn't until 1846, that they were patented in the U.S. What a great invention. Prior to its creation, clothes items were sewn together by hand...stitch by stitch.

I have no idea how to use a sewing machine; I think that it would be cool only if you were really good at it. I do not like “homemade” looking things a lot, so if I could make it look like it was from a store GREAT; however I am fairly confident that I do not and could never possess those skills. The only sewing I do is to Duke’s Toys so that we can prolong their life a little bit…I may have sown on a button before…that’s good right?
