Used and Donations

Thanks to all !!

We do not say "thanks" often enough to our loyal customers who support the store every day. Because of your support and generous donations of "previously loved" machines and fabrics, we are able to assist those less fortunate than us.

Below are photos of 2 of these endeavours.

Thanks again.
It is great to be surrounded by such kind, generous people.


We always have a good supply of used machines on hand. Please contact the store for specs/prices.


Over the past several years, Oakville sewing has has actively given dozens of Donated machines to communities in such places as the Dominican. While the programs have been successful, we are, at present, not accepting further donation machines ... we simply do not have the space. This program may be re-started in the future and we are grateful to those who have made contributions.
