Sewing Machine Repair-Do It Yourself Sewing Machine Repair-How toRepair a Sewing Machine

Dear Friends, My name is Tony Asef and I started my own sewing machine business 25 years ago. At that time, I had little knowledge of repairing sewing machines. I can well remember looking around for someone to teach me all the ins and outs, all the tricks of sewing machine repair. But unfortunately no books were available! After 21 years in this business, I have decided to write down all my hard-earned knowledge and tricks-of-the-trade in this step-by-step book. I want to teach other people how to do their own sewing machine repairs at home for themselves or as a business. As we all know, sewing-machine repair is one of the fastest growing businesses in the world today. Newspapers, women’s magazines, dry-goods stores, high schools and colleges are all encouraging millions of American women to do their own sewing, not only to make their own slacks, suits, shirts, sweaters, etc, clothes, but also to make nice clothes for their husbands, sons, or boyfriends. Statistics now show the tremendous growth in the number of women who make their own family wardrobe.

The latest figures show that over 89 million American women, because of the high costs of ready-to-wear garments or the undesirable workmanship of store-bought clothes, are now making almost all of the clothing for their families. Now is the time when a sewing machine specialist can write his or her own ticket. Never before has the money-making opportunity been so great in this field, if you know what you're doing. And this is not to mention, it is also a very prestigious occupation. But that’s not all. Most of these women find true enjoyment and satisfaction making the family wardrobe on their own sewing machine...

Holly Pike Will Teach You How ToDigitize Like A ProUsing GenerationsSoftware!

There are a lot of people who teach digitizing that don't understand digitizing or don't understand teaching. Sometimes... both! You won't have either problem when you learn to digitize with Holly!

Since starting her own digitizing business and website in 2001, Holly has digitized well over 20,000 embroidery designs! Would you rather learn digitizing from someone who has digitized a few designs so they could learn the software before they teach the class, or someone who has digitized over twenty thousand designs in order to make a living as a digitizer for over 10 years?

You can see some of Holly's digitizing on her embroidery club website at and on her design store website at to to get an idea of the variety and quality of Holly's digitizing and that of her students now too!

Holly's formal education and work background is in teaching. She studied music education at Northeastern Illinois University. After school, she taught music and band in Chicago area schools. She transitioned from teaching kids to running a music company where along with other work she taught teachers how to teach more effectively for several years. Later, Holly took a job testing, designing and teaching software for a "Fortune 100" company in Buffalo Grove Illinois.

In these jobs, Holly has taught everyone from 5th graders to corporate management teams, from warehouse guys to corporate executive, and everything in between. The nicest thing about teaching (besides June, July, and August) is that the skills for teaching one subject are transferable to teaching other subjects. Shortly after learning to digitize, Holly began teaching our first employee to digitize. Since then, she has honed her skills in digitizing and has continued to develop techniques for teaching those skills to others. She has now taught digitizing...
