History of National Tailors Day or World Tailors Day
The National Tailors Day is accepted and celebrated all over the world. The first country who started to celebrate the Tailors Day is not known. But everyone knows that the World Tailors Day commemorates the date of birth of the inventor Sr. W. E. Howe who invented the sewing machine. He worked in a weaving factory and decided to ease the work of the labor. He has created one of the best industrial inventions ever made. It then became one of the primary professions of the world. People started sewing with the help of the sewing machine on their own and simplified their work. This astounding event took place in 1845.
The first machine he invented could only stitch using the lock stitch loop technique. Sr. W. E. Howe earned millions of dollars from his invention in his short span of life living only 47 years. His invention was overrated at that times as every clothing factory or tailor shop has to use it those days as they had no good option. From then the tailoring industry developed greatly using the technology.
