History of National Tailors' Day
National Tailor's Day is accepted and celebrated on the first Wednesday of June. This day is the birthday of the brilliant creator Elias Howe, who invented the sewing machine. Working in a textile factory himself, he was used to the long working hours of textile workers. He decided to ease the work pressure of the workers and also increase the productivity of the factory. That is why he invented the sewing machine in 1845. His creation is considered one of the most important industrial inventions ever in human history.
Only after this invention did sewing become one of the main occupations of the world. Soon, textile workers became eager to use sewing machines because it simplified their work and reduced their stress, while increasing their productivity.
The lock seam loop technique can only be used with the first model of sewing machine. Elias Howe became a millionaire thanks to this invention. However, he lived a short life and died at the age of 47.
His invention was widely used at the time because every garment factory or tailor had no better option to increase efficiency. Since then, sewing machines have been widely used by the cutting and sewing industries all over the world.
