A little history...
Many years ago when I was just a little kid, my mother asked my dad to make a lap frame for her quilt projects. My father was extremely handy and spent a few days trying different designs and finally came up with the laptop hoop frame you see here. My mom, Pauline Barnett, brought the hoop frame to her quilt guild and it was a hit. Orders started coming in and my dad had a little part time business in the basement workshop. Unfortunately my parents are no longer with us. While going through my dad's workshop I found some of the parts that make the hoop frames. I stored them away for a few years in my attic and they collected dust. It wasn't until years later when I was cleaning my attic, making room for a workshop of my own, that I found the parts and assembled my first Barnett's Laptop Hoop Frame. It looked good, so I put it on www.ebay.com and wouldn't you know it...I had a bidding war. A new business was born!
It is now a few years later and we have refined the design drastically and have sold too many to count to happy customers. My shop has moved from the attic to a new shed in the back yard. I have a few new employees too. My 5 year old son, Harrison and my 13 year old daughter, Taylor helps assemble them from time to time. Hayley, age 12, does our demo videos and sanding and Payton, age 4, just supervises us working. We hope you enjoy shopping both our extensive book selection and our unique frames.
