What a great idea! Create a set of traveling sewing machines and take them to the different branches of your library system, sharing love of sewing and access to the tools to get the job done! Not only that but teaching in a library, well, you have access to all kinds of information. They’re learning about sewing, fabrics, you name it–limitless possibilities. When we received this application we were excited. We sent some machines. And the program was popular…it grew and grew. And we received a request for more machines.
So we called Singer. And they loved the idea too. We were thrilled when they shipped 15 brand-spanking-new machines down to Florida to help this program blossom. And so it goes. These pics just came in. They’re making skirts now–learning how to access free patterns online and using these snazzy machines to put them together.
We are so grateful to Singer for their help and belief in the work of The Sewing Machine Project.
