Customer Testimonials

Hi Jill-

Got my class materials and tools and a double portion of yarn today! Thank you!!!!!!
This was the best class I have ever taken, of any sort. You were a real big part of that. Thank you for your patience.

There is not one thing I will do the same as before the class. Already I used the needlepoint canvas to do the patch job, just like Robert said. Today I used the good end secure stitch, and just plied some new side cords and wrapped them and sewed them on like you taught us! It’s like a miracle! Plus “synthetic dyes natural fibers’ came in the mail today from Amazon.

Before, I thought maybe the class was expensive. Now, I see that it is expensive not to take the class.

Please convey to Robert my sincere and effusive thanks and gratitude. I’m not emailing him cause he is too busy.

Take care and regards to everyone-



Dear Ellen, Aaron, & Robert,

Just wanted to send a quick note to say how much I enjoyed the rug repair course in Dallas last month. I must admit my limited experience in rug repair had me a bit anxious about the course.  Thanks to your course, I found confidence in what I am comfortable offering my clients.  This was a fantastic value.  The Tool Kit and hand-out alone were worth tuition.  In my opinion, not only is Robert Mann a leading expert in the field of oriental rug repair, but also in the teaching of oriental rug repair.

Many thanks, Robert, Ellen & Aaron

I attended in Dallas the Master Rug Cleaner Rug Repair School with Ellen Amirkhan and Robert Mann, two of the finest and most professional people that I have ever had the privilege of working with.  If I  picked up 10% of what they know, I’ll be doing great.

Ellen,Aaron & Robert,

Thank you for an incredible oriental rug repair class.  The wealth of information provided was amazing.  I came away with a much better understanding of rug construction.  Robert’s hands-on approach to teaching was very easy to follow.  I gained techniques that I can and have already put to use to increase revenue in my rug cleaning operation.  I would recommend this class to anyone wanting to learn or expand their rug repair skills.  Looking forward to the next level class.

The Rug repair class I attended was way beyond my expectations.  I walked away with such a clearer understanding of rug structure and a therefore a  better knowledge of knowing the correct method to repair them. Robert Mann was extremely patient with us. I have so much more confidence to accept repairs that come to me now.  The book, tools and hands-on experience really gave me a better ability to add service to my clients. I’ve already seen my repair business grow since I’ve left the class.  I am very much looking forward to the next class!

Thanks very much,

I have been looking for a rug repair course like this. It was very valuable and well done. I arrived with many questions. They were all answered. The teacher/student ratio, 1-4, was particularly helpful because acquiring new skills is difficult in the beginning. The “hands-on” help at my elbow helped me over the hump when I was stuck or headed in the wrong direction.

I’ve sent rugs to Robert Mann Oriental Rugs to be repaired and been amazed when I examined the results. The repairs were excellent but the stitching invisible. Now I understand how to do that and can do basic repairs in-house. Well worth the time and expense.

The class was full of invaluable information.  The instructor/student interaction was great for the varying skill levels in the class.  The hands-on, free-form Q&A and demos aspects were fantastic.  Robert Mann and Jill are a wealth of knowledge.

With the knowledge I was given, with practice I can start doing repair.  Jill and Robert are great instructors.
