Sewing Clamps

If you are a sewer, stuff you have probably heard of sewing clamps. Sewing clamps were used the 18th and 19th century to attach one end of a piece of cloth firmly to a table to enable a seamstress to hold her sewing taut with one hand while stitching with the other. Before the invention of the sewing machine clothing, sheets and other household items were sewn by hand. Early clamps can be traced to the late 17th century. This one will be for sale in Carole’s Country Store before the end of the day. It’s 19th century and it does have a repair, but the clamp is still very strong. If you are a sewer or even if you aren’t, like me, you will love the way it looks. It just gives a room that early look that we love.
Before I go this morning, I want to thank everyone that visits my blog. I appreciate it so much and love knowing that you enjoy it. I will be driving to Virginia with my family, to be with my son for Thanksgiving. Over the weekend, I will be in historic St. Michaels, MD. for the weekend with some friends. After that, back to normal and I look forward to posting again. Until then, I am wishing all of you a very safe and blessed Thanksgiving Day.
Happy day
Carole

    A real roommate is but one what people overlooks your entire outages and therefore tolerates your entire successes. [url=http://www.a44.fr/]casquette YMCMB[/url] casquette YMCMB
