We have discussed among the sewing team. We really think we should replace the existing donated sewing machines which keep failing by buying at least three reliable new sewing machines. We have all worked with Necchi's during the Threads and Needles program and are very familiar with them. Catherine can obtain them locally at a discounted price. We think they are sound sewing machines that have all metal parts and therefore do not break easily, like the Kenmore. We think this is important considering the frequency of use. The Brother, Janome, and Viking are all having technical difficulties so everyone is waiting to use the Kenmore.
We would appreciate your help with this, as we are experiencing a sewing crisis. 3 out of 4 of the machines are broken.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration!
