Song of the Singer Sewing Maschine

I found this 1 hour radio feature on Radio BBC4 Archive. It is about
Isaac Singer, the history of the Singer sewing maschine and the impact
it had on the live of so many. Many aspects I did not know.

Just in case anyone else is as paranoid about links posted by new folks as I am (yes, I have been burned in the past), zscaler.com, reports it as "benign".
HTH,

You're welcome. I wish when folks post for the very first time, they would introduce themselves. It's awful that the internet has become such a dangerous place.

Yes, one might wish that poeple would mind manners a little more, both on the net and in the 'real world'. But: That sound snippet is actually a programme of nearly 1 hour, telling the story of the Singer sewing machine etc. I started to listen into it but cannot continue since DD is back in, and one does have to concentrate on it as it has all kinds of dialect and fancy sound samples (uh, as a non-native speaker, that is). And it's really BBC, so there's no danger listening to it. At least if you're not afraid of posh upper class British accents leaping out at you at various places across the programme. ;-)

Sorry, I did not want to annoy the list members with my email. So to make it up let me introduce myself: My name is Karo and I am from Germany. I follow the list from time to time. I learned basic sewing skills at school and have sewn every once a while since then. Lately I started taking sewing classes at the local community college, mainly to learn how to alter patterns (pants) and to have some help with the fitting. My current project are pants with a fly front zipper and two welt pockets, which should look identical on both sides but don't (yet). I liked the BBC feature because some of the stories told therein reminded me of the time when I was little and a dressmaker would come to our house to sew dresses for my mother and pants for me. For two or three days our living room was filled with the rattling of her sewing maschine.

Hello Karo! We're just a bit leery of people appearing out of nowhere and posting links. Usually they are a spammer wanting to sell us cheap foreign goods or some virus ridden link.
Welcome!!

Let's start with this is not a "list", nor is it e-mail. You have found Usenet AKA newsgroups:

I suspect, based on your e-mail address, that you are reading this group using google's (horrible) web-based archive. That's fine, but there are better newsreaders., I use eternal-september.org:

Be aware that although you are able to "delete" your messages from googlegroups, your message isn't actually deleted, it lives forever on Usenet.
Welcome, Karo! We have at least one other regular here who lives in Germany. alt.sewing is international, folks who post here live in France, England, Germany, Australia, and probably other places as well.
Best avocation ever!
JMHO ;-D
Thanks for the intro, and good luck with the pants. Fly fronts take some skill but once mastered it gets easier, and welt pockets as well. If you can, take a look at some of Claire Shaeffer's sewing technique books.
