    Hi ! I purchased your book, Stitch by Stitch, many years ago and have loved it. Unfortunately, the cd no longer works. I am wondering if I can purchase a replacement cd. Thanks.

      Hi, Kristen! The best suggestion I can offer is to contact the publisher directly: F+W, out of Cincinnati. They may be able to send another CD along to you? The book is no longer in print, and there weren’t any digital files prepared back in 2010, but they may have copies there of the CD. Hope that helps! I’m so glad you love the book!

    I have a treddle sewing machine I’d like to donate to an organization that would ship the machine to a third world countries. I remember seeing a news segment on tv along time ago. Do you have any information I can follow-up on to make the donation happen. Thank you for any information you can give.

    Oh forgot, I’m in the Atlanta area but would be willing to take a road trip within the Southeast to drop off my machine.
