    Gift of hope

    We had the pleasure of finding and winning an e-bay 401a for a friend who is going through a difficult time. Her DH had his leg amputated below the knee due to circulation problems then just returned home from quadruple bypass surgery. Her granddaughter had messed up her other one. We gave it to her this am. I never saw anyone so overwhelmed. It is very similar to one she had and was forced to leave behind many years ago. Tonight we were able to get a group of 20 cams that will expand its capabilities even further. Can't wait for them to get here! Is the season for giving. We feel very blessed to have been able to restore this machine to useful service to someone who will appreciate it. She will now be able to make Christmas presents for her family.

    A wonderful gift. Hope the GD leaves the "new" one alone. I'd put it under lock and key. Post an address and I'll send a fat quarter to her.

    Would love to donate some fat quarters. If you don't want to post her address, perhaps you could post yours and we could all send them to you to give to her.

    I think there are a lot of us who would like to send her some fabric. Please tell us how we can send it to her.

    I don't feel comfortable giving out her address without her permission but you may have mine and I will pass it along unopened. Just mark the envelope ATTENTION ALICE. I was able to find an old suitcase and a padlock that the machine fit in to give to her along with the machine. We had a slant needle buttonhole attachment to go with it. She was over the moon happy. She used to have a machine with this attachment but had to leave it behind when she moved years ago. She left busily planning Christmas gifts she could sew as their funds are so low.
