The Sewing Machines are HERE!!

We purchased three Heavy Duty Singer Sewing Machines last week and they arrived yesterday!

Here are some of the reasons we chose these machines:

  • The motor is 60% stronger than the average home sewing machine.  This will make it a lot easier to sew through the multiple layers of some of our tote bags.
  • These machines have metal frames which will ensure that the machine stays still for skip-free sewing. 
  • They have the capability of sewing 1,100 stitches per minute. 
  • It has the SwiftSmart Threading System with automatic needle threader and the drop and sew bobbin system.  These make it so much easier to thread the machine!
  • It also has a fully automatic 4-step buttonhole maker.

I can't wait to start training refugee women on how to use these machines and start making bags!
