The Sewing Machine Project #1

Our van is loaded and ready to deliver our first load of sewing machines in the morning. I say ‘our first load’, because we intend for there to be more loads. We will be leaving early to head for Madison, Wisconsin to meet Margaret Jankowski, founder of The Sewing Machine Project

These are the machines Louie and I are donating. They were all rescued, checked over and are now ready to help others.

No, I don’t intend to stop rescuing. In fact, my husband is telling everyone he sees about The SMP. Our friends D&J are too, and today, had one machine donated, for us to check over, specifically to go to The SMP. What a blessing!

Report back later on how our trip went. We’re excited, and it should be fun! My brother and sisterinlove have some machines to donate as well, and are going with us. It will be a fun day! (junkin’ included! Rolling on the floor laughing)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Oh Michelle, I'm just so excited for you guys doing this! I can imagine the joy the project will have when they see these machines donated in love that have been restored in love. Brings tears to my eyes! I look forward to hearing how it all went; like I said before, definitely a labor of love and so rewarding; you may never know the impact of what you did with this project this side of eternity, but I know you will be blessed the other side for your generosity and care and service to help others :)

You to are awesome and generous! As I was scrolling through your donations, I had to fire up the way back machine--The Futura II was my first brand new machine when I was 14! I learned on the school machines which were Singer 603's and Singer Golden Touch and Sews, and at home I used a borrowed 1930's era White. And I am sorry but I would have had to keep that Modern Super deluxe, it's just tooooo cute! Well, time to load up my motorcycle and go sewing with my Modern Quilt Guild. Thanks for sharing!
