That's a coincidence, Joanna. I was thinking of your quest just this morning and wondering if Fiona should launch an appeal on her blog. But you have done exceptionally well to source seven in such a short space of time. Amazing ok

I know I was quite shocked, only earlier on this week I heard that there was one and possibly another 3 and next thing I know it is 7, we still have to get them all to Worthing though by mid-October but hopefully that is possible, if not they will have to go on a later delivery a couple of weeks later from the Bristol area.cheers

Can't really take any of the credit really, it is a friend who seems to have managed to gather them together through her contacts. cheers

So, how about an update Joanna? How does the sewing maching story end?

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

Whoops sorry! Here is a photo of 9 sewing machines mainly electric being delivered to the orphanage. We had them all in our car on our epic trip back from our son's wedding.Image Enlarger

I have to say it was mainly the wife of the guy in the picture who got the information out to the right people and organised for them to get to the right places. Amazing!welldone
