Treadles for Progress

Great charity called Pedals for Progress taking used, unwanted sewing machines and shipping them overseas to allow women to open their own small businesses! What a great idea, and a great place to unload your old machine when you’re ready to move up a notch. As a non-profit, it’s even tax-deductible!!

    A sewing shop close to me is collecting sewing machines, I think, for your organization. I have a treadle machine, but a spokesperson at the shop said to only bring the machine, not the cabinet. I do not understand how a treadle machine would work without the parts of the machine that are attached to the cabinet, like the actual treadle. Do you have any comments about this?

      Hmmm… That’s a great question! I’m only familiar with the site, but I wonder if they’d have a better answer?
