Laurel Barrus

Laurel has been a long-arm quilter for over 15 years, is the founder of Handi Quilter, and has created and developed the patented Handi Quilter Home Quilting Frame and the HQ Sixteen Quilting Machine and Frame System.

As a certified longarm quilter, Laurel has created educational programs for sewing and quilting techniques that are used in classrooms across the United States and in other English-speaking countries. 

In 2002, Laurel sold Handi Quilter to an equity group, giving her time to once again enjoy the quilting she loves so much.
