Requirements: Have a love of quilting!
Instructor: Harriet Carpanini
Instructor Bio: Harriet Carpanini tried her hand at many different crafts while raising her three children as a stay at home mom, but quilting is the one she took off and ran with. Wanting to finish her own quilts, she bought her first Handi Quilter machine in 2004, the HQ Sixteen. She started her home business, The Last Stitch, a year later. In 2007 , and many quilts later, when Handi Quilter began it's national educator program, Harriet became one of the first educators. She began traveling the country and internationally, teaching her love of long-arm quilting. She upgraded her machine to the HQ Fusion with Pro-Stitcher, and has added the HQ Infinity to her studio. She continues her successful business while meeting new students and seasoned quilters from around the world at store events and shows. Handi Quilter opened doors she never dreamed of. Harriet's love of clamshell quilting led her to write Inside The Shell, a book featuring creative fills for clamshell quilting. She was also published in McCall's magazine, Heritage Quilts Made Modern. Find Hariett at www.facebook.com/TheLastStitch
