I completed the full lock stitch and overlocker courses with Alan and can only compliment him on the content and quality of the training. I have since started my own successful business servicing and repairing all types of machine including industrial and embroidery. Alan has also made himself available to assist and offer advice on the rare occasion I have struggled to complete a repair. Fully recommend 👍🏼

Delighted with the course. It was very professionally run, the information given was clear, concise and relevant. It has enabled me to maintain my own machines and, more importantly, recognise when I need to seek further professional assistance. I now feel confident enough to carry out a simple service and do some adjustments.

I recently completed the Domestic Lockstitch repair course mechanical levels 1 to 4 with Alan Williams at Artizan training. I found Alan to be a very knowledgeable and patient teacher drawing on 45 years experience servicing and repairing domestic and commercial sewing machines. I enjoyed learning about the theory of sewing machines then getting plenty of practice working on several machines. Having completed the course I feel I now have a good grounding and having returned home have successfully started servicing and repairing sewing machines. Once I have built up my experience I intend to return to East Sussex to complete the industrial machine and overlocker courses in the near future.

I did the professional mechanics course with Artizan training 2 weeks ago and I thoroughly enjoyed the week and I wish I could do it all again. Alan is very professional and a great teacher being patient and attentive. With over 40 years experience his knowledge knows no bounds. The files and books he has supplied will be a fantastic resource going forward. I will be looking forward to doing the industrial machine and overlocker courses next year. Thanks Alan!

The 6 day industrial machine course was excellent. Lots of practical work and insightful knowledge from an experienced professional. Great reference material to take home too. A very relaxed atmosphere in great surroundings. Highly recommended.

This course far exceeded my expectations. Alan's passion for sewing machines is infectious. He sensed what I needed from the course and made certain to focus on those issues. He was unerringly polite and accommodating but also fun and we had a lot of laughs. He's obviously a man who has always backed up his service with integrity. Can't imagine any better course!

Alan taught me both the industrial and domestic repair courses. He explained the principles so I understood what I was doing and then made me strip, and rebuild, repair and troubleshoot various machines in a way that felt natural and was very useful. He was friendly and encouraging in approach with a soft voice and kind nature. I fully recommend him and what has been one of the best courses I have ever attended.

During the past couple of months I successfully completed Mec Levels 1 2 3 & 4 FL & TL E-Learning Sewing Machine Repair Courses Through Artizan. My e-mail support instructor was obviously very experienced & knowledgable. He was prompt and concise, tough and patient, and brought me to the other side of several hurdles I faced. I thoroughly enjoyed the well designed course, even the tests, and look forward to one more I'll complete in the months to come. In late July I launched my own sewing machine repair business in Ontario, Canada I'm so pleased and content and in my element! Thanks to Artizan Training Joan Austin
