Randy Hayes moved to The Villages, Florida not long after meeting his now-wife Debbie Barnett on an online dating site in 2020. He learned about one of Debbie’s passions, mah jongg. He knew that if he was going to win her heart, he’d need to learn the game. He purchased her book about mah jongg, read it thoroughly then enrolled in one of her online classes. He was a quick study and was drawn to the game because of its complexities. Randy was so inspired by the game, he found a way to build a career around what has become their shared passion. He now sells automatic mah jongg tables and hand-crafted, custom-designed wooden mah jongg racks through Mahjongg Novelties.

Pine Hill Artisans
Pine Hill Artisans is interested in making your Mah Jongg game times more fun by adding style and fun to your storage options. Our tile and storage bags, sold separately and in sets, are a beautiful alternative to the cumbersome boxes and cases that come with a standard Mah Jongg set. One of our tile bags will hold a complete set of standard-size American Mah Jongg tiles, with room to spare for your dice and extra tiles. Our rack storage bags will accommodate four standard racks, with or without pushers. Both bags are designed to fit into standard hard- and soft-cover Mah Jongg totes.
All seams are sealed with double-fold bias tape; they will not fray or come apart at the seams. Depending on the fabric, some bags are lined to eliminate snagging or to give the bag added structure and support.
We are open to custom orders. If you have a particular interest or hobby and would like that reflected in your fabric, let us know!
We look forward to meeting you at MahjCon 2022! Stop by our booth and see how you can add a little flair to your game.
