Handi Quilter Field Education Program
Handi Quilter seeks longarm quilting educators to teach classes and work shows and events in the U.S. and Canada and around the world. Handi Quilter is the #1 selling longarm manufacturer in the world and is a company that emphasizes the importance of education, training and supporting their customers and retailers.
Consideration is given to quilters of any age, who have longarm quilting experience (computerized quilting knowledge a plus), teaching ability, and the physical stamina to stand, to travel, to teach all day or to work in a show booth. You must be personable, confident and a strong English speaker. Considering our international presence, competency in other languages is a plus.
Handi Quilter Field Educators are independent freelancers, not Handi Quilter employees. Handi Quilter retailers hire educators to teach at their stores or to help them in a show booth. All HQ educators teach a prescribed set of HQ classes and provide their own class samples and handouts. Many offer their own classes, as well. Educators must attend training to become familiar with the entire Handi Quilter line of machines, frames and accessories and must use a Handi Quilter machine in their own home while teaching for HQ.
This is not a fulltime working opportunity. Educators accept only as many engagements as they wish, but most travel at least 1-3 times a month, usually on weekends (when stores prefer to offer events and when quilt shows are open). Educators are paid a daily rate while working and their expenses are reimbursed via an invoicing process.
If you are enthusiastic about longarm quilting and sharing your passion and love for the field with others, we’d love to talk to you. Please submit your information here.
