Quality and comfort

Handi Quilter is dedicated to ensuring the highest standards of quality in everything we do. In order to build the best quilting machines, we do lots of testing before the machine gets to you. One of those tests is called the “sew-off”. Each machine is sewn with a certain series of designs to ensure the machine stitches perfectly.

This process produces yards and yards of quilted fabric. This fabric does not go to waste. There are some groups and individuals who take the fabric and make cute quilts to give to those in need of comfort.

One such group is The Piecemaker Quilters of St.Philip Presbyterian Church, Houston, TX.

They use the sew-off pieces, that you see in front of them, to create quilts for the children who attend The House of Tiny Treasures, an accredited preschool for homeless children. Tiny Treasures is under the umbrella of SEARCH (Service of Emergency Aid & Resource Center for the Homeless), which serves the homeless community in Houston, TX. The children in the preschool use the quilts as pallets for their rest time while attending the school.

In Waco, TX, another group, founded by Eulaila Young is the St. Paul Lutheran Church “Sew and Sews”. These ladies donate to needy groups in the community. The quilts to the right were donated to the Family Abuse Center.

For more information about obtaining sew off material for your charitable group, please email Cheeryl Jeppson or call 801-335-0841.

    An amazing use for your quality practice samples. There is such a need for items such as these mats and quilts and they are beautiful when finished. Your contributions to the communities are to be commended.

    I think it is wonderful that these people re doing these quilts for the children in need. I live in Wisconsin (Hate it here and plan to move back to Colorado when I can. I make quilts for the homeless children in Rock Springs, Wyoming and would love to have some of the sew off”s to make some quilts for the children there. My address is 780 Balsam Street Apt 10 Prentice, WI 54556. It is just myself and my friend Janet Koning in apt 12 that make the quilts and also the knitted hats for the homeless and also for the cancer patients and then we ship them back to Wyoming and also some to Colorado. That is how we give back to the community. We are two senior ladies ages 73 and 75 years old. Keep up the good work and God bless you all for all you are doing for those in need.

    I have a problem , my bars never stay in place, things slowly loosen , the long white clamps are worthless. If I had room for a 8, 10 ft frame I would be able to work shorter hours and have more control. And more space. Other then that I love HQ.hair
