The first garments were made of animal hides, stitched together Flintstones style, over 100,000 years ago.
Fabric garments came into use around 6500 B.C.
As time went by we invented fashion, and clothing became less concerned with protection from the elements and more concerned with style. The look and function of clothing varies from place to place depending on things like climate, culture, religion and status.
The ability to sew was, until resent years, a common skill. As manufactured garments became more available, sewing has become somewhat of a lost art.
Today's deal offers you the chance to learn that lost art for yourself.
Weather you just want to hem your pant legs or make make your own clothes, this deal is for you.
