Sewing Machine Day

13th June 2020

Event Overview

Repair don't replace! With so many people turning away from fast fashion and back to a more careful attitude with their clothes, it's great to celebrate the amazing sewing machine, what a gadget!

It is much faster than stitching by hand, and gives you less chance of arthritis too! It makes the little stitches of hems much quicker and easier in the long run. There is also a sense of accuracy to machines that will allow you to change and adjust as needed when using it, which makes it a clear winner. It’s neat, to the point, a no fuss way of making things and there are additional bonuses too!

How to celebrate Sewing Machine Day

Well first, if you’re an experienced seamstress or tailor, take some time to work with a piece of cloth without the benefit of a sewing machine. This may seem like a strange way to celebrate a device that made this method unnecessary, but by the time you’re finished, you’ll understand without question how important the sewing machine is in your daily life. Alternately, if you’ve never sewn a stitch in your life, now is the time to finally pick up a trade that will be useful to you your whole life.

Perhaps you will find a hidden talent or perhaps it will be the making of a new career for you; after all it is sometimes by chance that we find our new calling in life. You may take to it like a duck in water, so there is no denying that trying out a sewing machine is going to come with multiple benefits. Now you have good reason to understand why there is an entire day dedicated to this beautiful piece of machinery!

Can’t find a sewing machine, did grandma donate her machine to the local thrift store in 1995? Don’t panic, there are ways around this situation! Beg, borrow, buy, or rent a sewing machine and start putting needle to thread. Who knows, you may have found your new passion in life!
