Today, June 13, is National Sewing Machine Day! It's a day to honour and
celebrate the invention of the sewing machine. It was on this day that
Thomas Saint, a skilled cabinet maker and British inventor received the
first patent for a sewing machine design, back in 1790! While some of us
enjoy hand work, most of us are every thankful for our machines. Have
you shown your machine some love today? What do you like best about your
machine? Do you have more than one machine? Do you have an interesting
sewing machine story to share with us?
