Meet Our Sewing Technician - Mike Bellamy

Mike retired recently after 38 years at Chase Design as a senior model maker.  He operated and maintained various large and small machinery and power tools as well as order materials and supplies for the shop. He fabricated thousands of prototypes of newly designed products from hearing aids to a full scale locomotive cabs.  In his spare time, he worked at his wife, Linda’s company “Quilted to a Tee” repairing and servicing the long arm, embroidery and several other machines used to keep her business humming. Mike also refurbished and sold singer featherweight 221 sewing machines and offered service, parts, repair and custom repainting.


Mike will be adding, to his already extensive experience by getting his Bernina certification the last week of January.  He will be our second certified Bernina technician joining managing owner Jolene Fitch.
