Sewing History - Book Recommendation

 The children and I came across this book at our most recent visit to the library. It's called Queen of Inventions - How the Sewing Machine Changed the World. Well, needless to say it immediately had my attention! While it is a children's book, the historical information and imagery is captivating.
 It covers the importance of stitching and how the sewing machine had such a revolutionary impact on families and industry.
 One of my favorite parts talks of how this "Queen of Inventions" made it possible for mother's to work from home while their children slept. :) Still very true today!

The value of passing on this trade, this craft, the gift of sewing, is undoubtedly significant!
I am so grateful it was passed to me and am now delighted to share it with my own children.

This quick read is also worth sharing, and something anyone with interest in sewing is sure to enjoy. 
Happy Sewing,
Kristy
