in the longarm quilting world
The purpose of this list is to increase the visibility of longarm quilting business owners from historically underrepresented groups (BIPOC, LGBTQIA and/or people with disability)*, and to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in the longarm quilting community.
The longarm quilting community is always expanding and changing. The list below serves as a helpful starting point for those who wish to work with a longarm quilting business owned by underrepresented groups*.
