Alan and Milissa Dewey, a husband and wife team, are Asheville, NC-based “Bobbin Boy”. Alan, a master woodturner from Yorkshire and London, England, has worked with antiques and antiques restoration for nearly 30 years. Milissa is a PhD-educated historian and a journeyman woodturner who has worked in the fiberarts for over 20 years.
Together they serve an international fiberarts community. In addition to providing demonstrations and mini-seminars, they bring a mobile woodturners’ workshop to make repairs onsite, as well as a full complement of antique fiberarts equipment for demonstrations.
Bobbin Boy encourages fiber artists to bring their antique, vintage, and modern fiber equipment for assessment and/or repair. For items that can be repaired onsite, there is no cost. For more extensive repairs, they will make appropriate transport arrangements.
