June 13th Sewing Machine Day

Imagine if we were still sewing everything by hand! A shirt today would probably cost like $10,000.00! There is some debate where and when the first sewing machine was created. It is mentioned in 1830’s Europe and finally appears in the US around 1846. The patent here came on September 10th, 1846 to Elias Howe. So why is June 13th Sewing Machine day? Good question, no one seams (Get it) to know! So while we generally give a lot of credit to Elias Howe, I guess he was just copying something he saw or heard of.
