What to do with unwanted sewing machines

People often wish to donate sewing machines to us. We don’t have the capacity for this now, so we are working on a list of places which do. Let us know in the comments below if your are with or know of an organization that could accept sewing machines, especially if they can take machines which may need repairs.

Supplies we’re looking for

Our great volunteers got together to sort and organize all of our supplies, and see what we’re missing. If you’ve got fabric scissors, a seam ripper, an iron, a three-prong extension cord, zippers, or needle-nose pliers you’d be willing to part with, let us know.

Volunteers Barbara, Jenny, Bianca, and Carmel organizing our supplies.

Volunteers wanted

We get asked to run a lot of events, all around and even outside of Toronto. We’d love to do them all. If you’d be interested in volunteering at a repairathon in your neighbourhood, we’d love your help. No experience required.
