Baby Molly Auction

January 31, 2011

Please take a few minutes to visit the amazing Fundraiser Auction for Molly Campbell held by the kind-hearted Christina at Bamboletta Dolls

You will have the option of bidding on many beautiful handmade items or donating directly with all proceeds to be give to the Baby Molly Trust.

Molly was diagnosed with leukemia at one month old just before Christmas.  She is the youngest of five children for the Campbell family.

I know all too well of the struggles this family is facing right now.  It is the exact same type of leukemia that my sister Leslie so bravely battled.

When I think of how much it helped all of us, to know people were supporting her fight, giving what they could to help us through, it made the world of difference.  To have a meal, a place to stay, childcare, a ride helped so much to enable my family to be with my sister as much as possible.  The financial worry is immense in a time like this and your auction donation will help them so much!

I was honoured to donate something I made in my sister’s memory to help out this family.  If you would like to donate directly you can here, or you can bid on the many items up for auction.

Does anyone know anything about this machine?  Over the years I have established quite a sewing machine collection.  People often say ‘hey you love to sew, take this home with you’  I have an old vintage industrial Pfaff, a handful of vintage Singers, a Singer 20U Industrial machine that I use all the time.  A couple Janome machines and sergers as well as an Elna serger.  This beautiful green machine was given to me when I was about 18.
It’s a Vigorelli treadle machine in an amazing wooden cabinet and it is made in Italy and thats about all I know! I can’t find much online about it… it was given to me as a gift from a friend of my parents, since they know i love to sew.  It belonged to a seamstress in Germany at one point and made its way over to Canada with her son.   There is a website that sells a copy of the manual if you are looking for one here.

If anyone is interested in purchasing it please let me know, unfortunately its not being used here.
