Sew Cool! SFO's History of Sewing Exhibit
You don’t have to be a domestic goddess – or know a needle from a thread – to appreciate SFO’s new exhibit, Threading the Needle: Sewing in the Machine Age.
Dubbed the queen of all inventions (pre-computer era), the show chronicles the domestic sewing machine from the 1850s through the 1970s. Channel your inner DIY-er as you ogle relic machinery more museum-worthy than you'd ever expect from a utilitarian household labor saver. Vintage pattern illustrations, poster ads, homemade fashions, pincushions, sewing boxes, and other accoutrements are also on display.
