Class details

This is not a home-study, book or video. It is not an expensive apprentice type of instruction, requiring months of living expenses away from home. It is also not a factory training course where each student is provided with a factory new machine and exploring the same repair procedures that only applies to that one make and model. That type of training does not provide students with the knowledge to repair all of the thousands of other makes and models that are not covered in those types of courses.

The 5 day
repair class is an intensive basic training course where you will diagnose and service one or more malfunctioning sewing machines in the class after receiving the training. You will learn the various systems of sewing machines, how each system works and how to adjust it for proper operation. The "hands-on" section explores more complicated procedures and students may repair an average of 5 or more machines each during the 5 day class. Feel free to bring several machines to the classes. If you bring machines requiring normal service, you may complete several machines in the 5 day course. Click this link for more information: This is not a service shop where I repair machines for you. Many people save much more than the cost of the class in repairs they would have dropped off at the local service center.
As the economy slows, more people choose to have their older reliable machines repaired rather than buy new, so the demand for quality repair service business increases. About 60% of our former students have opened a full time or part time business for extra income. This is a class where I have combined the information from attending over a dozen manufacturer training courses and over 50 years of experience.

In conclusion,
My training classes are designed to provide you with the knowledge to service all sewing machines. It is not a speed contest to see how many machines can be patched up in three days. It is designed to learn how to thoroughly service machines to work as well as new.
If your goal is to learn how to become a competent service technician, you will receive that training in these classes.
If your goal is to bring several "basket case" machines for me to service at the class, you may prefer to contact your local repair shop.

All the "secrets" of the trade are revealed.
Looking for employment, or want extra income to supplement your retirement.
Start your own business.

There is a high demand for trained service technicians that have the knowledge to service all makes and models of sewing machines.

If you are not satisfied with the course at the end of the first day, I will refund your deposit. That's right, you can attend the first full day & still get your money back.Question: Can I get my deposit back if I change my mind at the last minute and don't attend the class?

No. Deposits are used to pay for the meeting room and student supplies. Deposits are only refundable, in person, when you attend the first day of class.
