Sewing - Tools and History

Sewing - Tools and History

The practice of sewing, as in using thread and needle to attach various kinds of material, has been dated to at least 20,000 years ago. Sewing is practically a universal occurrence, and the actual beginnings of it stretch back to the beginnings of history. It predates the weaving of cloth by many centuries, and was used to stitch together hides, furs, and bark for clothing and other uses.

Early sewing needles were made from bone, wood, or natural needles taken from plants as Native Americans did with the agave plant. The earliest verified sewing needles made from iron date back to the third century B.C.E. and were found in what is now Germany. Chinese archaeologists report finding a complete set of iron sewing needles and thimbles in a tomb dating from the Han Dynasty (202 BC-AD 220) in China. This is the earliest known example of a thimble in history. The thimble was developed to assist early sewers to push needles through thick hides and furs, and was first made from bone, wood, leather, sometimes glass and porcelain. Later thimbles began to be made from metal, and before the 18th century dimples in a thimble had to be punched into it by hand. The thimble also became an object of beauty with thimbles made from precious and semi-precious stones, and precious metals.

The first thread was made from plant fibers and animal sinew, which was used to sew together hides and furs for clothing, blankets and shelter. Later it was found that fibers from plants and animals could be spun together to make thread. The ancient Egyptians made thread by spinning these fibers together, and devised methods of dying the thread using berries and plant matter. In China and Japan, silk fibers taken from the cocoon of the silk worm was spun to make very fine thread.

For most of the history of sewing, it was done by hand. From the simplest stitches to ornate decorative work was done with a needle, thread and a steady hand. It remained so until the first patent for a machine that "emulated hand sewing" in 1790 in England. It is not known whether there ever was a machine built from the 1790 patent.

The first functioning sewing machine was issued a patent to Barthelemy Thimonnier in France in 1830. It used a single thread and a hooked needle to make a chain stitch similar to the one used in hand embroidery. The inventor was nearly killed when enraged French tailors rioted and burned down his garment factory because they feared the machine would cause unemployment. In 1846 the American Elias Howe was issued a patent for his machine, but the mass production of the machines did not happen until the 1850's when Isaac Singer built the first truly successful sewing machine. With needle, thread, thimble and machine, the art and craft of it has not only formed items for our use and comfort. Sewing has helped form civilization itself.

How to Chose a Sewing Machine in Five Simple Steps

How to Chose a Sewing Machine in Five Simple Steps

Sewing can be both a practical skill and a creative outlet. Anyone who isn't what Wal-mart considers to be a standard size knows how hard it is to get cloths to fit. Being able to sew your own solves the problem. But more - why risk the chance that some other women will have the same dress as yours - when you make your own this will never happen again!

So how do you go about choosing a sewing machine. Here are five simple steps to follow:

1. What do you want out of your machine. Are you content just to make clothes and use standard stitches or are you interested in advanced embroidery stitches and quilting. The latter two require specialist machines.

2. How much space do you have? Do you have a place that you can keep your machine set up- or will you have to move it off the dining-room table at regular intervals? If you need a machine you can easily move consider the weight and size of the models you are looking at.

3. Your budget - or maybe that should be the first point? In fact you can make your budget fit your requirements. If you have less money but want more features look for a second-hand machine. If you are happy not to have a computer controlled electronic machine then its still possible to find twenty year old machines which are in great running order.

4. Your experience. If you have used and liked a particular brand of machine, then it might be an idea to stay with that manufacturer - each major manufacturer tends to use similar designs across their range so your experience will be useful with the new machine.

5. Support and after sales service. With sewing machines there really is a premium to be paid for quality. A good quality machine will last many years and will have strong after sales and support. Try checking if you can still get parts for machines which have been out of production for years - a good brand will still support these out-of-date machines.

Chose the right machine for your needs because as with any craft having the right tools for the job really does make a big difference!
