Handi Quilter™

Suzanne's Quilt Shop became a Sales Representative for Handi Quilter in 2007. We had been watching the long arm quilting market grow and were looking for the right size quilting machine to offer our customers. When we compared the features and the price of the HQ Sixteen, we knew we had finally found our machine. Here are 10_questions to ask yourself when comparing machines.
