Good one Anael! We don't still have outhouses and cook on wood stoves, why would we still need to sew everything by hand? I usually chalk that up to jealousy. I've encountered that even in my quilting group

My first quilting instructor used to remind us that the sewing machine was invented in 1846. She said, "if you had to chop wood, wash clothes over a fire outside, and do all the other things women did manually in those days, of course you'd use your sewing machine if you could."
