Owner/Head Technician -
The son of a life long automobile mechanic, Toby grew up with a wrench in his hand. He started working with his Dad when he was very young, an informal apprenticeship that would last through adulthood. His Father was very old school in his approach to mechanical repair, emphasizing methodology, technique and taking pride in ones work.
After high school Toby pursued an undergraduate degree in education, working his way thru school as a precision machinist in a jobbing shop. Gaining this valuable experience in the tool and die trade would prepare him, after graduation, to land work as a prototype machine builder for a design and build engineering firm.
In retrospect one could see how these life experiences prepared Toby well for the day when he fixed a neighbors sewing machine. She was immediately impressed with his work and encouraged him to explore the possibility of sewing machine repair as a career. Toby always had the desire to be self employed, so he thought that this was an idea worth pursuing. That was 37 years ago and he has been repairing sewing machines ever since, making a living with the skills, experience and training that life has given to him.
