The Handi Quilter Avante is an iconic and rightly renowned quilting machine equally suited for both domestic and professional use.  Its reliability and semi-industrial build quality helped cement the reputation of Handi Quilter as the leading global longarm manufacturer.


This machine was installed in 2013 and has had just one owner, who now needs to sell for health reasons and to free up space in her home.  It was serviced in February 2022 and is in perfect working order.  It is also very lightly used, with only 1.2 million stitches.


With 18 inches of throat space and a full 14 inches of quilting depth, this Avante provides all the room you need to make your quilting easier.  And the Studio frame has a 4-rail system for easily loading your quilt tops and backing.  No more basting!  


With this 10-foot frame you can complete quilts up to 100” wide.  Or if you don’t have space for a 10-foot long frame, this can alternatively be set up at 8 feet in length.  In that case, the maximum quilt width that can be completed is 76”. This is the original Handi Quilter Studio frame (version). The difference between this and the current Studio 2 frame is that the side arms now have two possible positions - standard and clearview load. The side arms can be upgraded to a Studio 2 frame at a cost of £425.  More details can be found on this link. 


Pinhole Quilting supports all Handi Quilter machines in the UK as well as providing unrivalled after-sales service and training opportunities with leading longarm teachers.   All Handi Quilter machine owners also get access to two private Facebook groups dedicated to supporting and encouraging users.


In addition, the purchaser will be entitled to attend a 1-day Foundation Training Course at Pinhole Quilting’s showroom to help them make the most of their machine.  There will be no charge to the buyer for attending this course.


This will be a private sale but please contact us in the first place to find out more about the machine and frame and to be put in touch with the seller.  Please note that the frame has been disassembled for transportation, and the buyer is responsible for collection and setup.  One of our engineers could quote for this if required.
