Today we celebrate:

Sewing Machine Day – Also celebrated on June 13th, this is a day to use your sewing machine to make some new clothes for yourself and your family. Elias Howe received a patent for his sewing machine on this day in 1846.

Swap Ideas Day – This is a day for an open idea exchange. Swap your ideas with everyone you meet today, the only rule is that you must be open minded and not get into a fight just because someone might disagree with you or hold an idea that you find repugnant.

World Suicide Prevention Day – This is a day to do whatever you can to prevent suicides from happening. There are warning signs, find out what they are and spread the information around. If more people are able to recognize when someone might be headed down a suicidal path, there is a greater chance of diverting them to a more positive place.

To celebrate today, grab your sewing machine, and head to a friend's house to swap ideas while you sew. While you are there, check your friend over very carefully for suicidal tendencies.
