Do the names Elias Howe and Isaac Singer ring a bell? Those two gentlemen are attributed with inventing the modern sewing machine. If you’ve ever taken a Home Ec class or even worn clothes, you should be familiar with their work. While the wheel, telephone, and personal computer receive a great deal of credit for transforming human life, the stitching machine remains largely unrecognised. Without it, however, we would still be manually threading needles and sewing shirts and suits together. Whether you want a simple set of curtains to block the sun’s rays or aren’t contented with off-the-rack purchases, sewing machines are useful appliances that deserve praise. Create a couture ensemble and honour National Sewing Machine Day on June 13!

Create a garment for charity

There are people who lack sufficient clothing, shelter animals who require warm blankets for their crates, and children who would adore a handmade stuffed animal to cuddle with at night. Therefore, why not put your skills to good use and sew something that will be genuinely valued?

Communicate with your fellow artisans

The camaraderie that can result from a hobby like stitching is one of its greatest benefits. If your sewing machine is portable, stitch with others at a local fabric store or a friend’s home. Alternately, you can exchange ideas, solicit solutions, and display your creations on one of the numerous websites or forums devoted to handicrafts.

Get motivated by television.

Give your sewing machine a night off and tune in to “Great British Sewing Bee,” a spinoff of the immensely popular “Great British Bake-Off,” which aired from 2013 to 2016. Featuring a pattern challenge, an alteration challenge, and a made-to-measure challenge, the reality show is certain to stimulate your imagination. Like slightly more sarcasm in your shows? Additionally, there is “Project Runway,” which has been strutting its things for more than a decade! That’s a lot of opportunities to “make it work,” as actor Tim Gunn put it.
