Isaac Singer: actor, inventor, creative businessman issued sewing machine patent 165 years ago today

Isaac Singer was awarded a patent for his commercial sewing machine 165 years ago today!

"...He was working in a machine-shop in Boston in 1851 when he was given a sewing machine to repair. Eleven days later he had constructed a better sewing machine, which he patented. He then set up I.M. Singer & Company with two backers named Zieber and Phelps to manufacture the machine. He took it on barnstorming tours, demonstrating it at fairs and in hired halls while giving heart-rending recitations of Thomas Hood’s ‘Song of the Shirt’..."

As you can see, he recognized a need for an improved process, worked on it, and developed a revolution for needle and thread. I must tip my hat to him for being a rather creative marketer as well!
