Gilbert Gresslin spent many years working on sewing machines while serving in the Army. After leaving the service he and his wife Mary opened and operated a sewing machine sales and repair service in Spencer, Iowa.  They operated this business for many years giving a much needed service to the community and enjoyed helping individuals with their sewing machine problems.  They would clean, oil, make adjustments, replaced gears, etc. and the business was a complete sewing machine repair shop.
Gilbert Gresslin saw a need for individuals to be able to repair their own sewing machines.  Upon researching he discovered there were  no manual with this valuable information on the repair of sewing machines and vacuum cleaners.  Gilbert and Mary Gresslin took on the job of writing a complete set of sewing machine manuals and after two years they had manuals on the complete repair of sewing machines.  The First Correspondence Manuals were sold in 1971 and later updated to include many of the later models of Pfaff, Viking,  Necchi, and other brands.  The manuals are not written with just a small amount of information but a complete set of sewing machine repairs instructions including timing, changing gears, cleaning, oiling, settings etc.  The information was copyrighted in Washington, D.C. in 1971.   
Gilbert Gresslin sold the Gresslin Correspondence School of Sewing Machine Repair to Ron and Myrna Bishop in 1995.  The business was moved to Alexandria, Ohio and renamed Gresslin Information Center for Sewing Machine and Vacuum Cleaner Repair.
The How To  repair manuals have been updated, converted to computer format, and are offered on Compact Disk for convenience and ease of use.  They can be printed and placed into binders for use in the workshop.
