and most objects tell many stories. Allow me to make that argument by examining a common object, an “orphaned” sewing machine. Several years ago, my colleague Ivan Gaskell and I decided it would be interesting to have students look at one of the landmark inventions of the nineteenth century—a sewing machine. The first sewing machines were patented about 1845. By 1900 they were as common as a cell phone might be today—and just as much a model of innovation and social transformation. When we couldn’t find a sewing machine in any of Harvard’s museums, I called a curator who had been cataloguing Harvard’s so-called “ephemeral collections,” things kept in offices, dormitories, or classroom buildings. She said Harvard did not have a sewing machine, but she did and she would be happy to let me use it. It was quite a challenge to get it from her apartment to my classroom, but it was worth it. It was a beautiful thing (Images 1-3). But when I... I could easily have sold that sewing machine on eBay or given it away. Instead I decided to find it a good home at Harvard. I consulted several museums and at least two libraries. Everybody thought it was a terrific object, but nobody really thought Harvard needed it. One museum thanked me for my generosity but said a sewing machine really didn’t fit their collections policy. Another said it was a marvelous example of technology, but that wasn’t the focus of their collection. The libraries said it was a lovely object and certainly related to many things in their collections…but no, they couldn’t take it. It was too big. Where would they put it. “We are a library, not a museum,” one astonished staff member said. Not even an institution with as many tangible things as Harvard can accept everything anybody might offer. I nevertheless decided Harvard really did need a sewing machine. I just had to persuade someone to take it. Without question it relates to many of Harvard’s landmark museum and library collections. Sometimes a common object—an object so common that it ends up in flea markets—can actually connect aspects of history that far too often get separated in the way we think about and teach about the past. So I set about to expore possible connections between my object and Harvard’s many collections. An entry on their own website told me that they needed a sewing machine. It told me that what is now Singer Corporation was one of the world’s first multinationals and that the company also helped bring the installment plan into marketing. According to one scholar, the Singer sewing machine emerged from a collaboration “between a mechanical genius, Isaac Merrit Singer (Image 4) , and a lawyer, Edward Clark. ” Singer may or may not have been a mechanical genius, but he was a genius at keeping his own name in view: it appears at least five times on our sewing machine (Image 5). It is an appealing name: a sewing machine may not sing, but it certainly hums. Lawyer Edward Clark (Image 6) played another role. As historian Nira Wickramasinghe explains, “The early history of the company…can be read as a maze of patent grabbing by a number of inventors…. No owner of a single patent could make a sewing maching without infringing on patents of others. Clark was instrumental in the creation of the Albany patent pool, where the holders of these key patents agreed to forgo litigation and to license their technology to one another. ” Some sense of the importance of patents is seen on our sewing machine, which lists those from the 1880s to 1892 (Image 7). Howe contributed many things to Singer’s product (Images 9-12) , including the use of a vertical needle threaded at the... Howe’s patent drawing is accompanied here by a drawing by Sara Schechner, Wheatland curator of the Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments, that explains how it worked. The shuttle is a miniature version of a weaver’s shuttle. But in truth, our sewing machine is itself a sphinx. According to Greek mythology, a sphinx is a composite creature with the body of a lion, the wings of a bird, and the head of a human. Our machine has a body of iron, wings of wood, and a head that without question moves.

I have 2 sewing machines now and one serger. The Singer Izek has decorative stitches and such though don't use it much. The Kenmore is a trusty machine that I use a lot but if a bit too much to take to the sewing classes I am going to take this Spring. There are the uber pricey computerized machines that look really nice and have oodles of features but honestly I don't see myself using them a lot. This one looks sturdy (a tad heavy to take to class but I'm strong lol), has a wide harp area, thread cutter, in reviews people say it has a fantastic straight stitch (it only does straight stitch) and comes with walking feet and quilting feet. Annnnnd AllBrands takes PayPal. Hmmmm

I'm taking a great online sewing class called Home Ec (see the info here: frecklednest.blogspot.com/2010/07/home-ec-full-details-re... ) Although the class has started, it's go-at-your-own-pace, so I haven't really had time to start--until now! We're supposed to upload pictures of our sewing machines, so here is mine. I got it late in the spring, and this summer I've been teaching myself how to sew. It's a Brother XR-7700 and I love it! I finally set up a semi-permanent place to sew in my dining room, so I'm hoping to really get going now.
