    My husband is trying to find somewhere to take a course on sewing machine repair to start his own business. He has contacted the companies, dealers in our area and no one can offer him anything. The companies don't do anything like that unless he is a dealer and the repair people at the dealers won't give him the time of day. I've seen a couple of courses advertised on the internet but don't know if they are legitimate. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Is Ray White's site. He gives seminars around the country and lives in MO. I have attended his repair seminars and can speak for his expertise. He is an old Elna dealer and has great expertise in repair of all brands of machines.
