About the Sewing Machine Project: The Sewing Machine Project, Inc. (SMP), a 501(c)(3) organization, was formed in 2005 for the purpose of bringing sewing into peoples’ lives by offering sewing machines, tools, and education. We work with groups committed to using the machines to provide opportunities to create, learn new skills, build self confidence, and contribute to their own livelihoods and the well being of their families and communities. Since 2005 we have distributed over 3000 sewing machines, helping people become self-sustaining through sewing.  We work locally, nationally and internationally. LEARN MORE(link is external)
