From the Maitland Mercury report:
It was the machine that revolutionised the fashion industry and now the humble sewing machine will be the focus of a one-day exhibition in Maitland.
Friends of Grossmann House will open the National Trust property along with the nearby Brough House on February 28.
The open day will give visitors a chance to meander through the halls of these historical homes and ask questions of the well-informed guides.
As part of this year’s open day, there will be a display of a collection of original sewing machines, textiles and lace.
