Vintage Machine Motor Service & Rewiring

Covers external and potted motors on vintage machines

It is HIGHLY recommended that you are also enrolled in the Vintage Machine Mentorship Experience while using this workshop.  This is an ON-DEMAND ONLY workshop, but you will receive direct help as part of the VMME.  This workshop is FREE when you enroll in the Vintage Machine Mentorship Experience.

Please note that this is an EVOLVING workshop.  Here you will find the 'bones' of working with vintage machine motors and wiring issues, but we will keep adding more and more modules, types of motors, and tools for you as it meets the needs of those enrolled in the workshop.  

Course Summary


Course Curriculum

Andi Barney

Andi Barney, owner and founder of Sewing Doc and Sewing Doc Academy, began servicing vintage and antique machines as a hobby in 2010.  As an avid collector, and hands-on, curious learner, she begin the search for knowledge and instruction on how to clean, service, restore, and repair machines.  Unfortunately, there wasn’t much available, and there were no schools, colleges, or programs available.  Thankfully the internet provided crumbs, but much of the information was sketchy, even downright wrong.  The Academy was born due to a lack of skilled, reliable technicians available in most communities.

ALL procedures taught in the Sewing Doc Academy are the same procedures used daily in the Sewing Doc professional service shop.  On average, we service, resore, and repair 1000 - 1200 machines a year.
