Access the machines
Janome 6050 sewing machines are available for use for the intermediate to advanced sewer without supervision at 11 Allen St for a small fee.
People who wish to use the machines need to be inducted to this specific machine or demonstrate that they are capable of using the machine. The machines are identical to those used at Stitch Kitchen.
All ingredients for the project need to be brought in by the sewer. People will fill in a form to document the use of the machine to be able to maintain the machines and restock supplies. A koha is collected to grow a pool of money to guerantee smooth running.
The project is in development and will be showcased at the Science Teller Festival in the Otago Museum Hutton Theatre on July 9th 2021
If you are interested in volunteering to help caring for the machines, please contact me.
