Pennywinkle Quilting Machines is a home grown business that started in our garage back in the 90's with a welder, drill press and a cut off saw.
With the desire to build an easier way to quilt.
We designed the original frame to use with your domestic home sewing machine. Which revolutionized the quilting industry. With the encouragement of family and friends we decided to offer our quilting systems to the public.
A few years later, we felt the need to go to the next step. A professional quilting machine with a larger harp area combined with our frame systems. With the same high quality combined with affordability. To top it off made in the USA and no desire to go overseas.
Over the years, we now have a large machine shop with 8 computerized milling machines, 2 cnc lathes, automatic saw, 5 drill presses, tapping and debur machines and the list goes on. I have contracts with a couple outside vendors to do my powder coating, anodizing and computer routing of the enclosures.
This year we have moved our machine shop to a larger building (15,000 square feet). With this move we have added several more pieces of automatic manufacturing equipment.
Once all the parts are manufactured, in our shop we start the process of assembling, testing, boxing, then shipped to it's new home.
