The HQ18 Avanté® from Handi Quilter

A perfect mid-range longarm for smaller home studios and shops. 

This machine combines the quality of the Handi Quilter brand with a size perfect for most quilting projects. With either the 10-foot or 12-foot frame this machine's style and grace will accent any home studio, and the smaller size lends itself to portability if necessary.

The HQ18 Avanté offers expanded quilting space, two modes of stitch regulation and the HQ Precision-Glide Track with an 18-inch quilting machine. HQ integrated technology and HQ engineering provide all of the functionality that quilters demand along with the smoothest stitch in the industry. This quality product is backed by the HQ warranty and a large network of local representatives.
