About Us

At Kawartha Quilting Systems we endeavor to meet your long arm quilting needs with one (or more!) of our Gammill Quilting Systems.

Philippa, Erik and Zach Skjaveland are the names behind Kawartha Quilting Systems.

Philippa has been sewing for many years and began quilting a few years ago after taking lessons at a local quilt shop. The quilting bug hit and she was hooked. After doing a number of quilts she began to want more. She wanted to do the long arm quilting herself and not have to send it off to someone else to finish what she started. Philippa wanted to be able to say she the made the whole quilt herself. After using and selling long arms for a couple of years they soon realized they needed to carry a product line that offered a wide range of options to their customers. They are proud to bring Gammill Quilting Systems to Canada.

Erik has many years of business experience and an aptitude for mechanical things and is involved with sales and service support. His eyes have been opened to the quilting world and he loves being able help quilters achieve their dreams.

Zach has recently joined the team and offers lots of technical insights and ideas as well as sales and service support. He is our Statler Stitcher specialist .

The love of quilting and being with like minded people makes the adventure enjoyable every day.

Update:  We have moved and greatly expanded both our space and our product lines.  We are now at 40 King Street East in historic downtown Millbrook Ontario.  In keeping with our commitment to fully support our customer base with excellent complementary products we have added EddyCrest sewing furniture made right here in Ontario and the exciting range of sewing, quilting and embroidery machines from Brother.
