Ray Winslow, Manager of Maverick Sewing services, LLC, has been in the sewing machine business since 1969. He answered an ad “Assistant store manager wanted. Company car provided.” This ad turned out to be a sales position selling sewing machines by making house calls on prospects who responded to newspaper ads.  Servicing machines was an integral part of house calls as well.

The employer was Allyn Distributing Company (later renamed Allyn International), the US and Canada Necchi distributor.  As time went by, he moved on to manage the retail department store operation.  As the popularity of department store sales faded away, he moved on to wholesale sales to dealers nationwide.  He was the Sales Manager at Allyn until they closed the door in 2011.  In November of the same year, he started Maverick Sewing Services, LLC. and had been selling Toyota sewing machines to dealers throughout the US and Canada until 2019.  Beginning of the fall of 2019, Maverick Sewing Services became the US and Canada distributor for Necchi sewing machines.
