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.
I am nearing the end of this novel - I need to find time to finish it in one sitting. It is a novel of magic, not usually my type of book; however, well written, and I find myself interested in the main characters, as well as the supporting cast! I wonder what is going to happen to all of them - if this will have a good enough ending, or if it spills into another book, part two?.
