Woman Using Isaac's Sewing Machine
Isaac Singer stole Elisa Howe's idea of the invention of the sewing machine. Isaac Singer's invention was better than Elisa's, he sold more and it was cheaper. Cloth makers bought hundreds of Isaac's invention. Workers were able to make 12 shirts in the time it took a tailor to hand sew 1! He was sued by Elias Howe for stealing his idea, and lost.
