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.
