The Bobbin Doctor's repair shop is closed.

The Bobbin Doctor is retiring!

I've enjoyed my loyal customers and all of the great machines they've brought in! However, I'm retiring from machine work to do my own projects.

I look forward to sewing, weaving and even to my old passion of woodworking! There isn't enough time in a day to do all the things I enjoy!

I will still be teaching classes at Textile Center and I may be available for private lessons, mentoring and group lectures. Please send me an email if you're interested.

I will only be accepting new jobs if it seems like a project I will enjoy. At this point, life is about having fun.

I don't buy machines, but I do sell vintage, good quality mechanical machines. Please send me an email if you're interested in making a purchase.

Please note:

* I don't work on computerized machines or newer plastic machines.

* I don't work on sergers, or industrial machines.

* I work strictly by appointment only and customers who are early or late may find me too busy to accommodate them outside of their appointed time.

* Phone messages may be ignored. I'm often too busy having fun to bother with them.

* Feel free to contact me by email:
