The flooding of the past few months has hit the Midwest awfully hard. Everyone is feeling it. The Sewing Machine Project will do a collection specifically targeted to people who lost their machines in the flooding. We will be setting up a collection in the near future. Please check the website

Dear Margaret & Friends,
Just back to Madison after 5 months w/ family-2 deaths (One, my Mom-who taught me to sew @ 7 on a 1950’s gray Kenmore & went on to instruct 8 girls in my ’70’s 4-H club in Elmira, NY) and my aunt.(a non-sewer).
I brought back my Mom’s 15-20 yr. old Pfaff for myself–or swap for my newer one w/ my son’s Dad!
I’d purchased a Hans(brand??) machine in ’99, right before my husband filed for divorce–he took it in splitting goods claiming, “You can use your old machine”
ANYHOW-could your project use a good, solid, 55 yr. old straight stitch Kenmore in a cabinet w/ knee controll!!–doesn’t sound like it according to your site. My dear friend, Sandy W., @ church, sent me your website–WOW–so true, help one woman get back her livlihood or family needs met & it truly stitches back the community!
I, too, sew to relax & be creative–now, repairing jeans for a 12 yr. old son! Grew 3 in. in last school yr!
Glad to hear you’ve gathered so much support!! Wish I had funds to help donate, but, instead do so thru my Presbyterian church’s Nat’l/Int’l outreach missions.
Thank you–Barb D. on the Westside
