When thinking about the economic impact of technological progress, consider the sewing machine. It was far more than a labor saving device — or a job replacing device — even though the earliest models of Elias Howe's sewing machine of the 1840s could

There is one American who is leading an effort to bring textile manufacturing factories back to American shores. He is Steve Dickerson, a mechanical engineer and a professor emeritus at Georgia Tech. He created SoftWear Automation, a company devoted to bringing automation to the garment industry. Previous to the invention of his company’s Automatic Sewing Machine with Thread Vision, textile factories could not be fully automated. The structure of fabric, which allows the fabric to stretch and shrink, prevented an automated sewing machine from effectively sewing a garment. Professor Dickerson was at a conference and asked where was there the greatest need for automation and he was told that the answer was textile manufacturing. He got to work and eventually the Automatic Sewing Machine was the fruit of his labors. He was overjoyed to see that his product could bring the textile industry back to our country. As a boy, he grew up in Commerce, GA, where a number of sewing factories existed. They eventually closed down as manufacturing moved overseas to countries such as Bangladesh. The cheap labor costs could not be matched here and only automation could make American-made garments competitive. Remember that the American textile industry was once centered in the Northeast and moved South to take advantage of cheaper labor in the South where Right To Work laws limited the unionization of a workforce. With Asian labor even cheaper, textile plants in Georgia and the Carolinas moved there. Without any tariffs, or renegotiated trade agreements, Professor Dickerson is revitalizing American textile manufacturing, and there will be plenty of new jobs with great salaries. The only problem is that these jobs will require the worker to be adept at robotics, or computer systems, or quality control data analysis. Unless we begin to produce trained technicians to fill these positions, we may find that we need to import this labor force from Asia, where there are folks who have these skills.

The Merck's Family Old World Christmas is one of the leading distributors of the world's best-loved collections. For centuries all clothing was laboriously made by hand using a needle and thread. Developed in 1790, then patented in 1846, the Sewing Machine promised relief from countless hours of hand labor. The Sewing Machine was named the Queen of Inventions in 1860 and has been in use ever since.

Written in an engaging and accessible style, this first broadly focused compensatory history of technology not only includes women's contributions but begins the long-overdue task of redefining technology and significant technology and to value these contributions correctly. Stanley traces women's inventions in five vital areas of technology worldwide--agriculture, medicine, reproduction, machines, and computers--from prehistory (or origin) forward, profiling hundreds of women, both famous and obscure. The author does not ignore theory. She contributes a paradigm for male takeovers of technologies originated by women.

Belem, Berardo Collection, Centro Cultural de Belem, Lisbon, Portugal MATERIALS : Oil on wood BIOGRAPHY Man Ray (born Emmanuel Radnitzky, August 27, 1890 – November 18, 1976) was an American visual artist who spent most of his career in France. He was a significant contributor to the Dada and Surrealist movements, although his ties to each were informal. He produced major works in a variety of media but considered himself a painter above all. He was best known for his photography, and he was a renowned fashion and portrait photographer. Man Ray is also noted for his work with photograms, which he called "rayographs" in reference to himself. During his career as an artist, Man Ray allowed few details of his early life or family background to be known to the public. He even refused to acknowledge that he ever had a name other than Man Ray. Man Ray was born as Emmanuel Radnitzky in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S. in 1890. He was the eldest child of Russian...

One of two exhibit cases demonstrating some of the "how" of quilt-making, then and now. This is "then", and not all that long ago--in fact, still current for those who like to work in a traditional way. The sewing machine is a Singer Featherweight, a prized miniature machine that is portable and fully capable. It is important to remember that the sewing machine (not yet electric) was invented in the late 18th C., but not widely manufactured for home use until the middle of the 19th C. Prior to that, all quilting was strictly a hand-and-needle process. Exhibit at the Folk Art Center, Asheville, NC, on quilts and quilting.

Sewing machines are a pretty crazy invention. I don't know how they sew so quickly. My hands are way slower... I guess that's why someone invented a machine that works faster. How do they work anyway? Hmmm. Year 3, Day 40
