Sewing Machine Day

Per Holiday Insights web page:

Sewing Machine Day
June 13th and September 10th (the date that the sewing machine was patented)

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.
