The Mission of The Sewing Machine Project® is to offer sewing tools and education to groups committed to learning new skills, building self-confidence and potentially contributing to their own livelihood as well as the well-being of their families and communities.

Donate Machines

If you have a sewing machine or serger that you no longer need, please consider donating it to The Sewing Machine Project. Please make sure your machine is portable and in good working order.

Donate Time

Volunteers are the backbone of The Sewing Machine Project. Our family of volunteers lend their hands not only in preparing machines for shipment and helping to keep us organized but also with education, editing, consulting, and documenting. We’d love it if you would consider lending your expertise to our team!

Donate Money

Money donated to the Sewing Machine Project goes to supporting the organizing, preparation, and shipping of machines along with supporting our local classes and national curriculum. Every bit counts. You can even make a donation in honor of a sewer you love through our Forget Me Not program.

Help Us Mend Communities

This Project wouldn’t be possible without the generous donations of individuals and businesses. The Sewing Machine Project is a qualified 501(c)3 organization and your donation is tax deductible. You will receive a letter confirming your donation. Please show your support by making your tax-deductible donation today.
