If you have never used an old antique hand crank sewing machine.. or seen one will be pleased to see something beautiful, and simple…that simple, so amazingly pleasantly simple..and so pretty.  And while you sew, you will be sewing “green.”  The public and non workshop participants are welcome to come and watch these machines in action, and maybe try out a little project of your own…all ages are welcome.  And these lovely machines are for sale!
