Besides being a time to reflect on thoughts of gratitude, Thanksgiving is a time to let your family know just how much you love them and are thankful they are part of your life. All of our Handi Quilter owners are our family. When someone purchases a Handi Quilter machine we love to say, “Welcome to the family!” We like to think we are creating a community of quilters who will share inspiration and help each other in finishing quilts, just like families share and help each other.

Thanksgiving is a time to gather together. We offer lots of opportunities for quilters to gather together for sharing and learning at our local Handi Quilter education events,

We have a Facebook group page which is a gathering place for quilters to interact with one another, ask questions and share inspiration. Join in on the fun!

Take some time and get to know your family.

You’ll be enriched beyond measure. One way to start is to watch the And I Quilt videos. We put a call out for our family members to tell us about themselves. Quilters come from all walks of life and we found the stories fascinating.  We are proud of our family and like to brag so we decided to share some of those stories with the world. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel so you’ll be notified when each new personality’s video premiers.

As we celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday, we want you, our Handi Quilter family, to know how much we love and appreciate you and all you do to bring beauty, warmth, and comfort to the world by making and finishing quilts. And we are grateful to be a part of your creative lives. Happy Thanksgiving!
