Default Embroidery Machine

Hey,
My mom loved sewing and embroidery. She passed away in October and we have her machine and so many hoops. I have no idea what to do with all this stuff. Is there somewhere I can sell them? Donate them? Help! We also have a giant Martelli table that she hardly ever used but it sure is cool.

I would try ebay and see what you can get for it there. This forum has some pretty strict rules on selling things.

Hi Jcrawfor. Your best bet is to go to the closest Quilt store or to a store that Handles your mom's embroidery machine. That Martelli table costs a lot of money as do embroidery machines. They could give you an idea of the money you could get for all of the things of your moms that you don't want. My biggest fear is that my family will just give my things away before talking to my sewing friends first to see if any of them would want to buy or they can give it to one of them. Good luck.

Sorry for your loss.
if her machine is a Janome, there is a Facebook group where you can sell the machine. Be sure to remember shipping cost in the equation.. google janome buy and sell should pull up facebook.

My husband has the phone number of four of my friends. He has been instructed to call them when I go and they will come over and clean out my room. They know whats what.
