    Hi everyone, I know I am probably like so many of you...can't have just one sewing machine. I have started cleaning up older sewing machines and giving them to the needy, disabled, kids who want to learn..... It's my way to "Pay it Forward"
    Here are a few of my rescues that I am working on.

    I usually rely on my church or I look at Freecycle.com (in my State only) Then I speak to the person to make sure that is not just some person to take and resell machines. I really prefer referrals. I have made up some business cards and posted them in our church and local senior centers. I get machines to fix in return sometimes. It is a lot of fun.
