I found this at the ISMAC discussion group.

It is 167 pages of history, photos and references.

I prefer the printed page and with duplex printing, it is easier for me to handle and read at my leisure.............nodding off is optional!

Well, I often read history, but I rarely have the time on a fall or spring weekend to wade through 167 pages of it, let along print it all off first and THEN read it. I have massive amounts of yard work that I've been working on, as well as normal amounts of typical household cleaning/maintenance/organizing to do inside. And I like to be able to enjoy the outside weather while it remains fine. And I have a grandson that I like to spend time with.

Winter is coming and with it, plenty of time to fire up the wood burning stove and curl up with my TBR list.

I'd imagine most people aren't going to get 167 pages of history read in 24 hours on a weekend.

Thank you PattiAnnJ,
I love history of all sorts. and how nice that this provided in so many different formats, including printing. I will probably read this as you say 'at my leisure' on my kindle. (if I can find it, it's been missing since my move, lol) Perfect for a few minutes at a time before work while enjoying a cup of coffee. I do like that I can print it as well, I think I will do that, put it in a folder, and keep it in my sewing room. Great for others to pick up when visiting to glance at, or for me to do the same.
Thank you again,
Janyce

PattiAnnJ,thank you very much for posting the "The History of the Sewing Machine" !

I didn't count the pages as I was scrolling down,but I'm looking forward to read over 150 pages whenever I have time ! Quite often I print out interesting things to keep as a reference,like my 3D embroidery software reference guide with 188 pages from the website.I'm glad I printed it out when I found it,because it's not available at the website anymore.So,I can see myself printing out either the "The History of the Sewing Machine" book or just certain pages.Reading history is important to me,it enriches my life.

Thank you for sharing that, I am on ISMACS all the time and never saw that link. The book went onto a Kindle reader without problems. It will be nice to have when the kids make me leave the sewing room to take them to gymnastics and things like that!

About half of this is foot notes, credits and pictures.

Even your grandson might like the sewing machine that looks like a squirrel!

The features and details of the squirrel are the most pronounced compared to the other "figurine" sewing machines shown on pages 42 - 45.
