Basically, there's an amazing sewing machine museum that is only open once a month in London. They have loads of vintage sewing machines, including one of the very first ones.
Aaaand... turns out 2014 is the 200 year anniversary of the first sold sewing machine. Isn't that neat?
Direct quote from the website above:
"The museum is only open on day a month, and only between 2pm-5pm. This Saturday (7th Dec) happens to be its next open day [map link]."
