Handi Quilter Longarm Quilting Machines

HQ Top 25 Sales

“Designed by a Quilter, for Quilters.”

Handi Quilter, the top-selling manufacturer of longarm quilting machines, frames and accessories. Founded in 2001 by lifelong sewer and quilter Laurel Barrus, the company designs and builds industrial quality quilting machines in their North Salt Lake, Utah headquarters.
Handi Quilter is known for their quality and continual innovation. Our machines are engineered with quilters in mind. The term “industrial” hardly applies to the look and operation of these graceful machines. Yes, the machines have industrial strength and durability, but they are good-looking and easy to use for the home or professional quilter.

Handi Quilter is continually refining and enhancing their machines and builds each model so that it can be upgraded with new features and accessories as they become available. Over time, Handi Quilter has upgraded controls, tracks and wheels to name a few. Each upgrade improves the quality of the machine systems and of the course the quality of the finished quilts.

In 2009, Whatever’s Quilted in Wake Forest joined Handi Quilter as an authorized sales and service rep in Eastern North Carolina. We offer the full range of Handi Quilter machines from the Sweet Sixteen and Avante’ all the way to the Fusion and Pro Stitcher. Today, Whatever’s Quilted is among the top 25 Handi Quilter dealers in the network.
