Handi Quilter HQ18 Avante with Pro-Stitcher Computerised System and
12' Studio Frame - 

This machine and frame was originally installed in December 2015 and the Pro-Stitcher added in March 2016.  The customer is upgrading to a larger machine so this Avante will soon be available as a second-user system.


The machine has been regularly serviced by us - most recently just this month - and is in very good condition.  The Avante rightly deserves its reputation as a fabulous machine for both professional or domestic use. This example has just under 31 million stitches and will be supplied with all standard accessories, including a separate bobbin winder, rear handlebars, pantograph and laser light.  A ruler base is also included.


The Pro-Stitcher is a modern design with an electronic carriage, and is supplied with Art & Stitch software that can be used for creating and digitising your own designs.  


The buyer will get access to the unrivalled support and training opportunities provided by Pinhole Quilting as well as to the private Facebook group dedicated to Handi Quilter owners.  The new owner will be offered a free place on one of the full-day Foundation Training courses provided by Pinhole Quilting, worth £130.  Attending the course will enable the new owner to make the most of their new setup. 


The seller will be happy to demonstrate the machine to potential buyers, and may consider selling the Pro-Stitcher separately from the machine and frame if the timing of the sales is convenient for both. However, the preference is to sell as a unit and if you are interested, please discuss with the customer as serious offers will be considered.  


This will be a private sale but please call 01905 942972 to speak to Liz or Pete initially, or email
