We are delighted to announce that we now a Distributor for Handi Quilter Long-Arm Machines. We could not wish to be associated with a more supportive, dynamic and forward-thinking company who are clear leaders in their field than Handi Quilter.
However, our focus with Pinhole Quilting is not just about selling the best longarm quilting equipment.
In fact, we have a rather greater ambition:
Our aim is to be come a European Centre of Excellence for Machine Quilting
A bold ambition? Certainly. An impossible ambition? Certainly not. There are good reasons why machine quilting will continue its growth in Europe and we want to play a leading part in that.
So what do we really mean?
Our focus will be about you getting the maximum enjoyment and creative inspiration from your machine and if you're a business customer, perhaps the most efficient and productive use that produces beautiful results for your customers.
You might be an aspiring machine quilter, a hobby quilter, a celebrated quilt artist or a professional quilter. Whoever you are, we aim to provide something for you.
