As you probably know, the sewing machine has evolved drastically during the past two centuries! The first sewing machines were the product of the first Industrial Revolution (1760-1840), where people were transitioning from producing goods by hand to inventing machines that expedited the manufacturing process. Historical accounts claim that the Englishman, Thomas Saint was the first person to invent the sewing machine in 1790. Although, he never successfully advertised the machine, it was meant to be used with leather and canvas. From this point on, many other inventors created different versions and now we have our wonderful modern machines.
