Combine crafting with helping people, and you get good things all around. Ever think what life would be like if you suddenly lost your sewing machine? This is a reality for many folks, including people who have lost their homes to natural disasters. Started after the 2004 tsunami that devastated Southeast Asia, The Sewing Machine Project provides donated sewing machines – and fabric and notions – to just such people at home and abroad, from New Orleans to Sri Lanka. But there’s still work to be done! Take a peek at their site for more info on donations.
