HARKER HEIGHTS,TX -- Laura Winckel is the owner of Quality Quilts by Laura. She runs an ever-growing business and has begun to take her talents into dynamic new teaching and lecturing engagements. She cautions other entrepreneurs not to fool themselves into thinking they can do it all. You have to focus on your strengths, relinquish some control or some capital, and let others take the load off of you. Otherwise, Laura says, you won’t be able to meet demands as the business picks up. 

Laura’s business is headquartered in Harker Heights, Texas. Her town is pretty close to Houston, where some of the nation’s largest and most prestigious quilt shows are held. It is also an Army base, and Laura’s husband is a retired serviceman. This might explain why one of her major focuses as a quilting artist is the Quilts of Valor Foundation, established in 2003. Laura says being able to curl up in the quilts she collaboratively makes and awards, is a major source of warmth, pride and comfort for soldiers, and can even help with PTSD. To date, the foundation has awarded more than 180,000 quilts. Laura’s work for them has been featured in the Killeen Daily Herald and can also be viewed on her website and Facebook pages.

In addition to social media and recommendations, she meets clients at competitions, advertises in magazines, and uses communications such as this radio series.

Tune in to learn more about Laura’s work--which includes commissioned pieces, new and award-winning leather pieces, and the Quilts of Valor designs.
