Original Sewing Machine Design

It's hard to imagine a world without sewing machines. Can you imagine if we had to hand sew everything we wore? I honestly don't know how our ancestors did it.

Thankfully 150 years ago Elias Howe developed a design for the sewing machine -- a device which went on to revolutionize how and what we wear.

A few weeks ago I got a link in my comments directing me to a picture of the original sewing machine designs. I've been meaning to share it with all of you, but real life craziness kept getting in the way.

Anyhow, for those of you who are sewing nerds, check this out: http://www.archives.gov/historical-docs/todays-doc/index.html?dod-date=910#2011
