Meet Allen, owner / operator



Allen started fixing sewing machines, sergers and embroidery machines over 20 years ago and quickly discovered a passion that has been growing ever since.

He has spent most his life tinkering with all sorts of different machines, figuring out what makes them work and how he can fix them to run even better than before. Then he went on to get an Associates degree in Robotics and Automated Systems he uses everyday fixing machines at ABBE Repair. He also has a B.A. in Environmental Studies and is designing green energy products when he's not fixing machines.

When he's not working away in his shop, Allen also enjoys exploring the air in his single engine airplane he keeps at the Lake Elmo airport. He also enjoys finding birds and sometimes tennis balls with his award winning dogs.
