During the past 17 years he has worked alongside Linda as dealer in the quilting machine industry, performing installations, training, support of customers, and working trade shows. After 36 yrs in the electric industry, he decided it was time to retire and join Linda full time at QMS putting his knowledge of the computerized quilting system to work.

Workroom

Workroom

Our workroom is a 1,300 sq ft. building that is located on the main street of Southport, NC.  We recently moved here from Cincinnati, OH for the milder climate and to be just a stones throw from the beach.  During the tourist season we get to meet many visitors from all over the country.  If you’re ever in the area, please stop by and say “hi.”

 

Piecers

We also have piecers that are a tremendous asset to our operations.   Linda and Greg have full control over cutting, layout and colors, but these piecers are instrumental to sewing about 80% the quilts together.
