About Instructor: Since taking a course in Montreal in 1980 on how to repair industrial sewing machines, moving into the mid 1980's, I worked for a Husqvarna dealer repairing both domestic & industrial machines. Then in the early 1990's for a Bernina dealer in Orleans and another in Alta Vista. I also worked part-time for Jiva Sewing Centre & Sewing Machine Hospital. In the mid 90's I was offering an in-home sewing machine repair service in Ottawa. In 1998 started a full-time job with Machine a Coudre Gatineau, the biggest repair centre in all of Outaouais where I remained for 15 years. I currently work part-time for Gatineau Couture ( formerly Machine a Coudre Gatineau )
