Seamstresses have made an invaluable contribution to history.

People put their hearts and souls into every stitch when they sewed items such as parachutes, tents, flags, blankets, and uniforms. Quilts were also a passion and necessity during war. In 1863, more than 1,200 quilts were issued in one month to Union soldiers; some were made specifically for the troops, while others were family quilts sacrificed for the cause.
