Donating Machines to a Safe-House

As you may or may not know, I teach sewing lessons on a weekly basis at a local safe-house for traumatized/exploited kids.  Here’s a link if you’d like to know more:

News from the Safe-House

Lessons have been going strong for about 2 years now, and everything is great, except – we have more kids than ever and not enough quality machines to go around….

Soooooo, I let the President of Baby Lock know what we’ve been up to and our present needs…..  the next thing you know, there are 10, yes, TEN brand new Baby Lock Molly’s arriving at Humble Sewing Center as a donation to the safe-house!!!!

Thank you BabyLock!!!

Thank you Baby Lock!!!

I told the ladies at our monthly Baby Lock Club about the donation and they agreed to be in the picture with me!  This is a wonderful group of ladies who meets with me once a month to share ideas, tips, and sewing techniques for Baby Lock sewing machines, embroidery machines, and sergers.  It’s always fun!  Drop in sometime!  Dates and details are on our calendar.

Today, I was able to deliver the 10 Molly’s to the safe-house!
