The TinLizzie Story
1948 was a historical year. It was that year when Bill Floyd, at the young age of 18, established Floyd Sewing Machine Shop in beautiful California. With passion and drive behind him, he started off in the business of sewing machine repair. But after boundless determination and gratifying success, Bill began to manufacture several specialty-type sewing machines. His insight and process modifications enabled many factories to significantly increase their production efficiency.
In 1972, Bill’s son, Ernie established his own manufacturing business with the same passion and drive. A decade later, his family’s solid background in the sewing industry led him to sell his manufacturing company and partner with his father in the retail business of sewing machines.
Ernie moved to Utah in 1996 to better establish one of the company’s retail locations. What he learned through this process gave him deep insight into the sewing machine industry. Each step along the way brought him closer to the realization that there was a solid void in this market. With a determination to fill this void in the quilting world, the dream of TinLizzie18 was born. Ernie’s son, Joshua, joined the family business in 2006.
In 2005, their shared vision for an affordable, quality long arm quilting machine that would appeal to both hobby quilters at home and professional quilters alike became a reality and TinLizzie18 went into production changing the quilting industry for better and for always. Today TinLizzie’s quality machines can be found in homes and businesses all over the world.
