NATIONAL SEWING MACHINE DAY – June 13

NATIONAL SEWING MACHINE DAY
Observed annually on June 13 is National Sewing Machine Day. This day honors the invention of the sewing machine. It is hard to imagine having to sew things together by hand, stitch by stitch.

Skilled cabinet-maker and English inventor, Thomas Saint, received the first patent for a design of a sewing machine in 1790. It was intended for leather and canvas, was never advertised and no evidence of it, other than his drawings, could be found. In 1874, William Newton Wilson found Saint’s drawings in the London Patent Office, made adjustments and built a working model. The London Science Museum currently owns Wilson’s model.

Walter Hunt invented the first American lockstitch sewing machine in 1832.
John Greenough patented the first sewing machine in the United States in 1842.
Industrial use of the sewing machine reduced the burden that was placed upon housewives, moving clothing production from them and seamstresses to large-scale factories. This also resulted in a decrease in production time which caused the price of clothing to drop considerably.

Today, many people are again becoming interested in the art of sewing and making their own clothing. Crafts fairs and flea markets are filled with booths full of beautiful sewing machine-made clothes and craft items.

Quilters across America are known as sewing machine experts!

Take a Road Trip Day
ate When Celebrated : Always the third Friday in June. This year Take A Road Trip Day is the first day of Row by Row Taste the Experience. June 21st.

Summer is here. The weather is sunny and warm. The kids are out of school. The summer vacation season has arrived. It’s time for a road trip!!

The road awaits you. Today is the perfect day to declare yourself a day off and just get away. This special event is on a Friday, so you can call in to work to use a vacation day and make a long weekend of it. While you can plan this day in advance, today will be the most fun by making it an unplanned trip. Be adventuresome. Go with the flow. Some of the best vacation memories come from a spur of the moment trip, with no prior planning or thought.

Here’s how to best enjoy Take a Road Trip Day: Your road trip is about the journey and not the destination. Sure, you can point to a destination, But, don’t get hung up about reaching it. Take a spinner from a kid’s game board, and spin it. Point your car in the direction the spinner indicates, and just drive. Make sure to stop along the way at points of interest, arts and craft shops, wineries and breweries, or any other place that attracts your attention. Keep off the superhighways and you will find much more fun things to do.

You can take a simple day trip, or you can pack an overnight bag and extend the road trip into the weekend ..my favorite choice. If you opt for the overnighter, remember this is an unplanned trip, so pack your bag at the last minute.

For those of you who can’t hit the open road without a planned route and destination, it’s okay. Just keep in the spirit of an unplanned event as best you can.
