Well today I thought I would do a little history lesson of the start of sewing. It amazes me how things have evolved, not always for the better but there are some great tools of the trade out there now for us.
Hand sewing is over 20,000 years old! and the first sewing needles were made from bones or horns of animals. The first thread was made of animal sinew. It wasn't until the 14th Century that iron needles were invented and the 15th Century was when the first eyed needle appeared!
