MONONA - The Sewing Machine Project will be collecting donated, working sewing machines on Sept. 10-12 at Quilt Expo in Madison.The Sewing Machine Project is a grassroots community building enterprise.Founded in 2005 by Margaret Jankowski of Monona in response to the Southeast Asian tsunami, the goal of the project is to help people rebuild their lives after a natural disaster or war, by providing them with sewing machines and sewing supplies.Across the globe millions of women support their families through informally organized sewing based businesses. When natural disasters and wars tear their homes and lives apart sewing machines are lost, and livelihoods are jeopardized. The Sewing Machine Project collects and services donated sewing machines and supplies and delivers them to people who have no means of acquiring a replacement machine for themselves.
