Happy Anniversary!

It is not my anniversary, it is the 100th anniversary of the Hookless Fastener!

It doesn't sound as exciting as saying Happy Anniversary to the zipper!

A hundred years! Did you know that the zipper did not gain popularity until the 1930s?  

There is a fun article all about it over here.

Happy Sewing!
