Adding a note about who made it and where and when–it might seem silly to you today, but someday someone might really care quite a lot about the one garment you made that you cared the least about.  Wouldn’t it be cool to find a dress your great-grandmother made, with her name sewn to the inside?  Wouldn’t you love to know more about who made that vintage quilt you bought at an estate sale, and how long it took her to sew?  How inspiring!  How connected to those who have come before!
