MEET THE INSTRUCTOR

With over 33 years in the sewing industry, Eric Drexler has developed a wide spectrum of expertise. As a senior in High School in 1983, Eric started working in Joyce and Fred Drexler's Sewing Center as their sewing machine mechanic. Over the next 15 years, he went on to become a Teacher, Manager and Co-owner until the business was sold in 1998. For the last 13 years, he has been a full-time employee of Sulky of America during which time he has become more heavily focused on his creative side, while continuing to indulge his passion for sewing machine repair in the evenings and on weekends.

Free-motion artistry has been Eric's other life-long passion ever since he was inspired by Joyce (co-founder of Sulky) when, at age 10, she first taught him the technique. He has made numerous large and small works of machine art, some of which have been featured in Sulky Books and at Trade and Consumer Shows all over the country.
