Black History Minute / Sewing Edition 🤗
.
Most of us know that American inventor Garrett Morgan invented the traffic light, and an early version of the gas mask…
.
But, did you know…
.
He began his career as a self-taught sewing machine mechanic, and developed improvements to the machine mechanism, including the ability to create a zigzag stitch?!
.
Later, he and his wife, a dressmaker, ran a sewing business.
.
So, the next time you sew a stretch stitch, buttonhole or decorative stitch, think of Mr. Morgan ❤️🖤💚🧵
