Sewing Machine Day

Date When Celebrated : June 13th and September 10th

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 Saying: "A stitch in time saves nine."  Interpretation: Saves nine what, you ask. Well, stitches of course. One stitch made right away, prevents further breakage and will not require nine more stitches later.

.


The Origin of Sewing Machine Day:

There remains some mystery around the date for this day. Almost all documentation on the internet suggests that June 13th is the date for Sewing Machine Day. But, we found no information why this date was selected. We did find an occasional reference to September 10th as the day for this holiday. And, this is the date that the sewing machine was patented. We also found a single reference to "New Sewing Machine Day" on March 1st.

 If you sew, you have two days to celebrate Sewing Machine Day.....lucky you!
