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
