The LongArm Handi Quilter story began when Laurel Barrus could not go on vacation without her machine. I mean what better way to spend time at a cabin than quilting a project! She needed a frame that could fit into her car. She searched for a solution. It seems like it always happens…when you need something, you cannot find it. But unlike most of us she did not give up. She went to her father and asked him to create a frame that she could use with her sewing machine. The Handi Quilter was born. The result was a light and small quilting frame that could be adjusted for quilt size
Well, when your friends have something cool, then you must have one as well. Right? The fairytale began and by May 2001 a new business and concept was born. Laurel and her team designed a quality product at an affordable price. Handi Quilter became the only quilting machine to earn worldwide safety and electrical certificates. (Did I mention affordable?). Do you need more convincing?
