To celebrate the oft overlooked National Sewing Machine Day (June 13), Gena and Jean begin their discussion with their own experiences as sewing machine users. Perhaps the listener will be inspired to include his/her sewing activities in a personal history. After the break, the history of the sewing machine is discussed, along with its connection to "time payments" as we know them today. Learn about all these from the podcast or the list of resources, posted at http://genaandjean.blogspot.com.
