Thank you Dane,
I am very happy that you have helped the way you have, it speaks volumes of your character. Also liked the pictures on
your website in the link on your home page when I clicked on the sewing machine on crutches. Your work stands out just
like your preformance on handling your customers the way you do. I also use a okami gold (twice as sharp) machine to
do my scissors and now with my new Tru-Hone Industrial electrical knife sharpener I purchased from you will help our
business on cutting professional edges on our customers dull knives. Nice to deal with another tradesman and a
businessman who helps his customers prompt. Once again I thank you for your help, you are an honorable man!
Thank you, Russ
RE: Pfaff Hobbylock 4870 Parts
From: Ruth in Houston,Texas
Thanks for your kind words. As it turns out, I may end up having to purchase a new serger after all. Apparently, the local dealer who
said he tried to fix my serger and then told me he could not because the parts were no longer available did not tell me the truth
about what actually happened to my machine. What I discovered today is that the dealer broke off the screw that holds the thread
guides on and, when he could not get the rest of the screw out, decided he did not want to bother trying to fix it anymore. Instead of
telling me what happened, he simply called and told me to pick it up my machine. When I did, he explained to me that he couldn’t fix
it because the parts he needed were no longer available. He never told me about the broken screw. He was at least nice enough to
return what’s left of the screw, the spring, and the thread guides (that’s how I figured out what had really happened) but he was not
honest enough to tell me he had broken the screw himself. Now I’m not sure if the machine can be fixed at all. Anyway, I’m really
disappointed that I may not be able to fix my serger but I am glad that I found out the truth. I only wish I had taken my machine to
someone else to be fixed properly. Thanks again for your help. It’s nice to know that there are some honest people like you out there
willing to help someone like me.

their merchandise and gives the customer the attention and service needed- and i understand the full meaning
about compatible accessories- i know they do not come with a machine at Sale Price or not - i know i must pay for
those before hand- thanks again from a very satisfied customer!

Hi, Wanted to pass along a big thank you to everyone involved with the custom cut top and leg set I
recently ordered. The cut is perfect for this machine. It all went together very quickly and in no
time we were fully operational. I've attached three pictures so you can see how nice it came out.
Thanks so much for a quality product.

This is a fabulous small business. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a good sewing
machine doctor! I had a 50-year old machine that was missing parts, and even though I was not
sure what the names of those parts were - Dr. Danes knew. They shipped the parts to me right
away and they worked beautifully.

Thank you, I appreciate your expertise and you can bet I checked your operation out before I considered ordering from you.
You do indeed have a great reputation and have been very helpful.
I am a retired Mechanical Engineer and in my working years, I designed and developed Flight instruments for commercial
jets.I have been working on donated sewing machines and serger's as a volunteer for the last 10 years or so for sale at low cost
in a St. Vincent de Paul thrift store.
My reputation has spread in the community and I have been able to help many with their machines at low cost. There is no
professional shop in our county here in Arizona.
Good doing business with you,Glad I found you and hope to order more parts in the future.

Dr. Dane, thanks so much for the recent work on my machine as follow-up to your earlier work. I was so surprised
at no charge, since I am a repeat customer of yours, 20 years or more. It's been running just fine for now. If/when I
need to totally replaced the motor, I'll be back. I truly appreciate your help with this family heirloom machine.

This place was fabulous, I have never felt so comfortable leaving my precious sewing machine with this man,
Dr Dane. He was very experienced and kind. Will be back and bring my other machines. The service is done
in a timely manner and well. All my friends will be happy to know I've found the place to bring my machines
and there's too!!
great place!! excellent service, friendly staff. i will always trust my sewing machine with this sweet
mom and pop store!

Went to Dr. Danes store last week to look into getting a new machine and he asked me if I have one
already, I said yes but that it hasn't worked for a year and I felt that it was to old to fix but after talking to
Mr. Dane he explained to me unless I just wanted a new machine with more options that the old one
could be fixed at a reasonable price and would run many more years to come!
Wow most places want to get you into a new model whether you need one or not, just to get your money
Mr. Dane really made me feel like he cared I will recommend him, He treated me as he would his own
Dr. Dane's Sewing Machine Hospital is the place to bring your machine.
I have been sewing for over 50years and I would not trust anyone else with my machines. He is honest and
knowledgeable.I travel over 30 miles just to bring my machines to his shop. Today it is hard to find the
personal care Dr. Dane invest in servicing your sewing machines.
Not enough stars in heaven for Dr. Dane. I have a serger older than dirt and the needle on the plate was gone.
Dr. Dane fixed one when no one else would try. Now I am sewing for missions and it works beautifully.
I drove over three (3) hours and well worth the drive. Thank you for the way I was treated and the service I
God bless you and your business.

The Necchi part -- check spring -- arrived last evening. THANK YOU so much for your quick service
as well as the wonderful "free gifts!" I'm sure I'll be ordering from you again and will be sure to
mention you to my friends.
Thank you again,

I can't thank y'all enough for taking the time to help. Thank y'all for the great advice, and the information to order the
right parts. I love that y'all are neighbors also. Maybe one day I'll drive my Mom up to y'alls shop.
She would get a great kick out of that.
I'm waiting patiently for Monday for the arrival of the motor. I'm headed to Mississippi soon after to work on a film.
But when we wrap in about a month, I'll email y'all and set up a visit.
The greatest thing in life I can accomplish is to make my Mother smile. Y'all have given me one of those opportunities.
I can't thank y'all enough and wish y'all the best for doing that.
See y'all soon !

I would not want anyone else to work on my treasure.
I traveled three hours one way to bring my machine to Dr. Dane's Hospital for repair. This is the second time I have
used him for a machine that should have been put on the shelf years ago and he always gets it running. Parts are no
longer made for this old serger, ( lost plate needle first time, bent looper second time). Dr. Dane is always able to
come up with what is needed to repair my machine. Since I am so far away, Dr. Dane repairs my machine while I
wait and that is such a great plus with me. I also found out that Dr. Dane serves the same GOD I do. When he prays,
mountains are moved and crocked places made straight. I believe his faith in Jesus is one of the reason's his work is
so outstanding. God establishes his thoughts and orders his steps and guides his hands.
Thank you Dr. Dane for living a life pleasing to God and using your talents and gifts He has given you to bless others.
God bless your business as you continue to serve Him.
