    An Orphaned Sewing Machine - Harvard article

    This is a good read about the history of the sewing machine, Singer specifically. It has really touched so many people around the world. Beautiful photos too.

    It's a long read but well worth the time. I suggest you get a cup or glass of your favorite beverage and settle in for a very informative read. Oh, and continue to the comments ... there were 3 when I read them.

    Thanks for the post Carol.

      THANKS for this article, Carol. That's going to make a nice read during this Brrrr weather.

      it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

          Interesting article for sure. And the subtext even more interesting to me. Fascinating when museums are dismissive of ideas that transformed both business practices and society as a whole. I bet they wouldn't turn down an early Apple computer.

            Great article. My dad worked for Singer when I was growing up and my first machine was a featherweight, which I still have. Thanks for sharing this.

              Very interesting! I had no idea of the amazing spread of the Singer sewing machine throughout the world. More articles like this would complete the story!

                  I printed it out so I will read it later. Thanks for posting Carol. I love Singer Sewing Machines. That was the first machine I learned to sew on years and years ago. That is all I will use.

                      I was amazed at this too. I knew it was a great invention but wow - it was all over the world and gave many a craft and job. I was impressed to know Singer was the first to have installment plans too.

                      I was a good read with a nice alternative style of telling the story too.
