Sewing history

judyann | Posted in Talk With Us on

Yes!  Not only people history, but history about sewing machine develpment, methods, fads, etc.  I would love it.  My grandmother sewed on a treadle machine, my mother made dance costumes with a pattern she cut from newspaper after seeing a picture somewhere.  I love to read this sort of thing.

    Judy the type of articles you mention would be really interesting to read. Hopefully Threds will listen to some of this e-mail under various topic headings, that focus on what you are saying.

    Judy,

    Try these 2 sites:

    http://www.vintagesewing.info/index.html

    http://www.fashion-era.com

    Vintage sewing has some actual instruction sheets, etc., from Butterick - many decades, early 20th century to mid-century.

    FashionEra is just a delight! History, related articles, fashion trends, etc., but sometimes it doesn't load correctly, just keep trying. Their server is not very reliable.

    Enjoy!
