June 13 is National Sewing Machine Day. France invented the first sewing machine in the 1830s. In the United States, the first patented sewing machine was in  1846. Prior to this invention, everything was sewn by hand. Today would be a good time for making something special for your home.

Today’s Saying: “A stitch in time saves nine.”  A good stitch will prevent making more stitches in the future.
