What? No photos? With a list this long it would take quite some time to attach all of the photos but you can check back in my earlier posts as I recount tales of finding these sewing machines and what it took to bring them back into service. No shipping: you have to come for the experience! Garage is pretty cleaned up and I have sewing volunteers coming to help: Jane (who got her Bernina via pony-express from Chicago this summer), Ellie (buy and giving sewing machines to Haiti for her women's project), and Natalie (who finds great boxes of attachments and vintage fabrics for me) for which I'm already grateful for their generous spirits.

Many are planning on coming and we are going to have a good time, too, with sewing extras for sale (patterns, fabric, magazines, some random accessories), along with a smattering of regular garage sale items for the rest of the crowd. Come to meet my (almost) 90 year old mother-in-law who is coming just to meet all of you. Yup: sewing is social!
