About Us: Fred and Tina Wissen

NEW ADDRESS - April 2015: We recently moved to Chesapeake, VA. Please contact us if you need to update your address book.

Fred Wissen Designs LLC is owned by Fred and Tina, with the help of two wonderful children, Brittany and Zachary. Our pen supplies are sold on

Fred began woodworking as a hobby in 2004 making solid wood furniture for friends and family. He has also tackled larger projects remodeling his family home and built his woodworking workshop from the ground up to have enough space to store his tools and projects.

Fred first got into wood turning a few years ago when he attended a pen making class at the Norfolk Woodcraft. Since then, his wood turning hobby has expanded into handcrafted bowls, pendants, and many styles of pens. Tapping into his engineering background, Fred has also learned to custom design handcrafted molds to pour your own polyester resin and other casted pen blanks. Fred has been a member of International Association of Penturners (IAP) since 2009 and is nicknamed PTownSubbie on their forum.

Trinidine Wissen, more affectionately called Tina by her friends, likes to design polymer clay pens and two versions of polymer clay blanks that can be ready-to-use or lathe-turned.

Tina has worked in graphic design and various retail operations for over 20 years, but she has specifically marketed pens and supplies since 2009. Tina is also a member of IAP - nicknamed MrsPTownSubbie.
