[ACT] Does anyone have a sewing machine they can let me use?

Hi guys, as most of you know already, for uni myself and a dozen others have formed a small company to make and sell a product in 14 weeks (9 left now). The product we've chosen to make is vinyl wallets, which we would prefer to sew together if possible for the sake of quality. Problem is, being a team composed entirely of males, we don't have much access to sewing equipment!

Does anyone have a sewing machine I could have access to for a few hours for a couple of weekends?

If not, then we'll just have to put the wallets together with laminators/heat presses.

HUNG-SU YOU WORK HARDER IN THE SWEATSHOP!



Unfortunately one item I never had (but could use if required) was a sewing machine.

If you are really really stuck I could arrange to get my mum's one when I see her in a week and a half. :-)

Asian guy sewing wallets does sound rather sweatshop-ish eh xD

I don't think I would dare try to use an overlocker with vinyl. A standard sewing machine needle will do a couple of layers of vinyl without a hiccup I'm sure, but these wallets are 5 layers thick at their thickest. yeah =/

Hiring one would be an issue due to our relatively small budget. I'll run that idea by the team but I don't think they'll approve.

Thanks a lot joey, will let you know how things go =) Anyone else out there?
