June 13: Sewing Machine Day

June 13 is Sewing Machine Day! Can you imagine if you had to sew all your clothes by hand? I can tell you one thing: I’d have a lot less clothing if I had to make it all myself, or even if I had to pay someone else to do it by hand!

There are actually two Sewing Machine Days on the calendar. One is September 10, because Elias Howe received a patent for his sewing machine on that day back in 1846. However, June 13, which seems to be a totally random date, also appears to be more popular than the one in September.

“All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.”

Acts 9:39b

P. S. June 13 is also one of my favorite random holidays: Kitchen Klutzes Day / National Kitchen Klutzes of America Day.
