Knitting blog Some blogs about sewing
Some blogs about sewing. The history of sewing dates back to the Paleolithic Era, at the end of the Solutrean and the Magdalenian, 21,000 years ago, when the use of bone and ivory eyed needles spread. Sewing was usually used to tie animal skins stitch by stitch for the purpose of designing clothing or shelters. It was invented in 1800 by Joseph Marie Charles dit Jacquard, in Lyon. It is also to this inventor that we owe the mechanical loom known as the Jacquard loom, developed in the years that followed. Is Couture Reserved For Women? Great couturiers are also men - Sewing is also increasingly practiced by men. The discipline has become more democratic over time. It is said that women are more precise and more diligent than men at needlework, but this is not necessarily true. Yves Saint Laurent: He is undoubtedly one of the most famous couturiers in the world. His reputation is so important that his life was the subject of a film released in 2014. Born in Oran, Algeria, companion of Pierre Bergé, Yves Saint Laurent is also one of the greatest French fashion designers.

- How to Love the Yarn You’re With February 22, 2022Somebody fibbed. I’m not sure who did it. But someone gave us the idea that the specialness of yarn expires when it’s no longer new.
