Alan and Milissa Dewey, aka "Bobbin Boy", are a husband and wife team based in Asheville, North Carolina.  Alan is a master woodturner from Yorkshire and London, England and also repairs and restores textile equipment.  Milissa is a PhD educated historian, a journeyman woodturner, and a weaving and spinning specialist.  They are internationally known professionals in the textile world and visited Hickory Ridge Museum for a day of demonstrations, fun stories, equipment repairing, and recommendations.  We are thrilled to have hosted them and were very happy with the turn-out, even on a rainy day!
