When he turned sixteen he left the farm to apprentice to a machine maker. Because of the financial panic that happened that year, however, he lost his job and was forced to go to Boston to seek work. He again apprenticed as a toolmaker and machinist to a marine toolmaker. Howe was a brilliant machinist, but he had a disability which had caused permanent lameness. He knew he would eventually be unable to work as a machinist, so he began thinking about how he could make a sewing machine.

In 1846 Elias Howe patented the first practical sewing machine. It attracted little attention, and he moved to England to perfect it for use with leather and similar materials. When he returned the next year, he found that I. M. Singer was making and selling his sewing machine. Howe finally established his patent rights in 1854, and his invention revolutionized the garment industry.



Invention of The Sewing Machine

Several patents had already been awarded to people for a machine that could sew (four patents, to be exact), but none of those machines made any money because of their design. Howe undertook the job and sought to perfect the mechanism so that anybody could easily use the machine.

{2018 } Nunavut Day Celebrations Iqaluit, 09 July 2018

On July 9, 1993, following the passing of the 1982 plebiscite on the question of the division of the Northwest Territories, the Parliament of Canada passed the Nunavut Act, establishing the territory of Nunavut, to come into operation sometime in the future. On April 1, 1999, Nunavut became a legally distinct territory from the Northwest Territories, coming into being as a territory on this date. 


The following year, in 2000, 'Nunavut Day' was celebrated on April 1. However, it was felt that the 1993 Nunavut Land Claims Agreement had greater significance to the people of Nunavut, so the holiday was moved to July 9 the following year.
