A sewing machine for the winter

Cranbourne women making clothes and bandages hoped to cut down on the intensive labour of doing it all by hand.

The Cranbourne Branch of the Voluntary Work Organisation (under the War Office) resumed its weekly meetings on Wednesday September 27th. The Committee of the Working Party will be very grateful if any lady will lend them a sewing machine for the winter or part of it.
