12 Aug : Sewing was not so easy before

Do you remember this ? Old memories… The Singer Sewing Machine 

It was the first user friendly sewing machine. American inventor and entrepreneur Isaac Merritt Singer, made important improvements in the design of the sewing machine and was the founder of the Singer Sewing Machine Company. Today in 1851, Isaac Singer was granted a patent for his sewing machine.

The first sewing machine was patented in 1755. It was a double pointed needle with an eye at one end.
In 1790, the English inventor Thomas Saint invented the first sewing machine design, but he did not successfully advertise or market his invention.
The first practical and widely used sewing machine was invented by Barthélemy Thimonnier, a French tailor, in 1829.
The first machine to combine all the disparate elements of the previous half-century of innovation into the modern sewing machine, was the device built by English inventor John Fisher in 1844 for the processing of lace materials.

बचपन की यादों में मौजूद है ये सिलाई मशीन… घर के किसी कोने में सिंगर की सिलाई मशीन रखी रहती थी… ज़्यादातर लोगों को ये मशीन ज़रूर याद होगी… आज इस मशीन को इसका अस्तित्व मिला था… 1851 में आज अमेरिकी आविष्कारक Isaac Singer को अपनी सिलाई मशीन के लिए patent हासिल किया था…  हालांकि ये पहली बार नहीं था… 1755 से लगातार सिलाई मशीन के अलग-अलग मॉडल तैयार किए गए और उन्हें पेटेंट कराने की कोशिश की गई… लेकिन Isaac Singer को ये मौका मिला… Isaac Singer ने अपने surname पर मशीन का नाम रखा था… और Singer Sewing Machine Company की शुरुआत भी की थी…
