-Junior Editor Quiz on- SEWING THE FIRST SUIT OP CLOTHES IW THE HISTORY ^/E\> QUESTION. When was sewing with a needle first invented? ANSWER: It was a chilly afternoon in cave man country somewhere in Europe. Time? About 50,000 B .C., in what's called the Upper Stone Age. A cave-father, wishing he could keep his family warmer in the cold weather, had a great idea as he gnaws an animal bone. There were scraps of animal hide laying around. Why couldn't they be joined together. He started grinding down the bone until one end was sharply pointed (2), drilled a hole in the other end (3), poked a strip of sinew through the hole (4), and showed the whole contraption to smart Mrs. cave man. She instantly picked up the idea and got to work. Result, (main picture), she concocted a suit of hide clothes for her son, crudely sewn, of course, but sewn together just the same. Something like that must have happened, because actual bone needles from this period have been found, with holes in one end. With the discovery of firemaking, of stone tools and weapons and this one of sewing clothes, men living in cold climates had found a way to master their environment.
