Used Handi Quilter HQ18 Avante with 12' Studio 1 Frame with Pro Stitcher Computerised System – Price £SOLD
Machine and Pro Stitcher could be sold separately. Please ask for further details and see below.

A customer based in Wakefield is reluctantly selling her HQ machine. The Handi Quilter Avante 18" longarm machine, frame and Pro Stitcher computerised quilting package is available for sale. 

The machine will be supplied with all standard machine accessories (including a separate bobbin winder, rear handlebars, pantograph and laser light) as well as the Pro Stitcher computerised system comprising the computerised carriage, tablet and holder. It also includes extra bobbins and the Leader Grips system for easy quilt loading.

The machine was installed in July 2016 and has warranty until July 2021 on the machine and Pro Stitcher carriage. 

The current price for this package new is over £20,000 but is being offered for sale by the owner for just £SOLD. The machine has under 250,000 stitches so represents extremely good value when purchased together. 

The seller may be interested in splitting the machine from the Pro Stitcher and selling these two items separately but would prefer to sell as a unit. The Avante with Frame, Bobbin winder and accessories would be £SOLD. 

If an existing Handi Quilter Avante or Simply Sixteen owner (it cannot be used with other machines) is interested in just the Pro Stitcher element it may be available for sale at £SOLD. This does not include Art and Stitch. The new owner would also need to purchase a Flexi Rack track (£112 for 12' Track). This system will run the latest version of Pro Stitcher Premium.  Please contact us if you are interested in this option to check it will work with your current machine.


Like all Handi Quilter machines the Avante is extremely well built and is equally suited to both domestic and professional use.  The new owner will join the thriving Handi Quilter community in the UK, and will get access to the unrivalled support and training opportunities provided by Pinhole Quilting.  

Also included in the price is a free place on a full-day Foundation Training course at Pinhole Quilting's Worcestershire showroom, to enable the new owner to make the most of their new setup. Training on the Pro Stitcher is not included although there will be classes on Pro Stitcher in 2020. In addition private tuition can be arranged at a separate cost. 


This will be a private sale between seller and buyer so if you are interested please contact us and we will pass your details on to the current owner.  Second-user machines usually sell extremely quickly, so if you are seriously interested then get in touch straight away.
