    Happy Sewing Machine Day!

    Sewing Machine Day

    When : June 13th

    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 it's creation, clothes items were sewn together by hand...stitch by stitch.


    People who know how to use a sewing machine are dwindling in number. Our mothers and grandmothers had a sewing machine in the house. They used it, too. But, look around your house. Do you have a sewing machine? Chance are, the answers is no.


    If you have a sewing machine, enjoy today making things with it. If not, consider picking up sewing as a hobby.


    Today's Thought Provoking Saying:

    "A stitch in time saves nine."

    ...Saves nine "what"?

    Hug your machine,

    Bunny

    Thank you for the information.

    Happy Sewing Machine Day Everyone.

    I'll go home tonight and give all my sewing machines a pat and an "atta girl"!

    If only I'd known I would have let her sleep a little later. My sewing machine and I had a date this morning at 5:30 AM before I went to work. Sewed the side borders on my quilt.

    I can't imagine life without a sewing machine.

    Thanks for letting us know!

    I will have to remind everyone at my class it is sewing machine day. Maybe we should sing happy birthday to our machines?
