Andi Barney has been a professional service technician and functional restorationist for 15 years.  She closed her service shop in the fall of 2022 so she could teach her skills full time through her virtual programs.  She is factory trained by Brother, Janome, Viking, and Pfaff, and has a deep love for old, metal machines and bringing them back to life.

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.
