Hi all, putting this here because someone here or we collectively can make a difference to a families life. I have been for a short while employing a builder to do some changes for me, he is punctual, reliable and good at what he does. Hi wife, however works as a seamstress and from one month to the next never knows what she will earn from the dodgy people that she works for. The plan is to get a hold of an old (they are all old) treadle sewing machine that requires no fixing. To date they have not been able to afford one, so I thought I would ask here if someone has once stashed away. Some folk regard them as antiques and display them. We need one to help someone make an honest living while she keeps an eye on her grand kids. It has to be treadle because they have no electricity. If anyone has one to sell to me or donate please, please let me know. Frans tells me he has seen them for around R900 but having looked at gumtree they range between R2500 and more, because some regard them as antiques.
Please, even if you want to sell it and it's fully operational let me know.
