"One of the few useful things ever invented"
Who invented the sewing machine! People are always asking me? It's a great story.
By the middle of the Victorian Era sewing machines were taking hold but before that period all fabric would have been joined by hand, every single stitch. As the population of our planet exploded and the Industrial revolution took hold someone had to come up with a solution of how to join two pieces of fabric quicker and cheaper than by hand.
This led to a fascinating trail of invention and failure. Some inventors died in poverty some became rich beyond all their dreams. One man, Isaac Singer, became famous forever.
