National Sewing Machine Day is celebrated on June 13 of every year. The unofficial holiday celebrates the day in 1790 when English inventor Thomas Saint got a patent for the very first sewing machine design. Nevertheless, it took 14 more years before the first working sewing machine created in 1804, and another 15 years before sewing machines became quickly accessible to consumers. It was intended for leather and canvas, was never issued and no confirmation of it, other than his drawings, could be found. In 1874, William Newton Wilson found Saint’s pictures in the London Patent Office, made arrangements and built a working model. The London Science Museum presently owns this model.
“My parents got me a sewing machine for Christmas during my senior year of high school. I made three pieces of clothing and had a fashion show at the end of the year, where we had to wear the clothes that we made. I took it to a whole new level; I made all my friends clothes.” – Kourtney Kardashian
