Virtual sewing machine service training for the home sewist

LIVE Open House Event

90% of machines that are "broken" just need troubleshooting and routine service - 

But service shops and technicians won't tell you that.

Join our open house event to learn how our virtual programs will replace the service shop and how you can help others in your community!

This is for you if:

  • you have sewing machines (sewing machines need routine service)

  • you don't have a trustworthy service shop near you

  • you use your sewing machines for business and can't afford the down time

  • you have inherited  your grandmother's vintage machine and don't know if it needs repair

Andi is joined by Paul, her husband and business partner.  Paul has been working mostly in vintage machines since 2016 and specializes in electrical rewiring, motor service and repair, and deep restorations that need creative solutions.
