    Truly 100% action packed. If my feet hadn't started complaining, I would have stayed and helped with the clean-up.

    Volunteered with a wonderful group of hard working individuals. And, someone was able to get my sewing machine going and put it to good use. There's going to be lots of Haitian children donning some colorful duds.

    I'm bringing my sewing machine. It has never been used, but I took it to a shop to have it conditioned, since I was told that even brand new, sewing machines will not necessarily work if they sit in a box for a long time. Maybe someone will know how to get it started? If not I can do whatever I can to help out.
