Handi Quilter University


At Handi Quilter our main focus is on the quilter and our retreats are designed with the quilter in mind. Most of our classes are held in our spacious studio at our headquarters in North Salt Lake and every student has their own HQ18 Avanté machine to work on. Time is split between class instruction and hands-on training with our award-winning Studio Educators. Class sizes are kept small for more personalized attention.
