Hi!  I'm Andrea Walker of Walker Quilt Co.  My husband Josh & I live in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina.  I discovered longarm quilting about 3 years ago in my local quilt shop....I had never seen anything like that huge machine before and couldn't wait to see it in action!  I was completely mesmerized as I watched the shop owner, Maxine Ramey, work on her quilt.  A few months later, I completed my very first quilt and wanted to quilt it myself and try out that beast of a machine!  I was a nervous wreck of course, but determined to go for it anyway.  I did, and fell in love!  I have been addicted ever since, finally purchasing my own Handi Quilter Fusion with ProStitcher in July of 2015.  I jumped right in with both feet, starting quilting professionally the next month.  Here's a peek at my quilting studio:

 

I have been very blessed to have the opportunity to turn my client's quilts into completed treasures.  I enjoy free motion quilting and the creativity it unleashes, but also like the expanded capabilities available through computerized quilting as well.  Visit my gallery page to see some of my work.      

I also enjoy teaching and sharing my love of quilting with our Handi Quilter customers at the shop where I work, A Stitch In Time.
