SOLD! Handi Quilter Avante PLUS 18" Longarm

The Handi Quilter Avante has proved itself over many years as an incredibly reliable machine with superb stitch quality.  There are probably more Avante's in the UK than any other longarm machine, and they are rightly sought after in the second-user market.


This machine is available as a result of the owner upgrading to a larger Handi Quilter longarm.  Purchased from new by the current owner in 2014, it is the 'Plus' model  with various improvements over the original.  It has completed 7.6 million stitches, which is not a high number for a quality longarm machine such as this.


It is supplied with a 10 foot Studio1 frame capable of completing quilts up to 100" wide without basting.  Also included are a heavy-duty bobbin winder, ruler base, super clamp, easy-grasp clamps, centering tape, a pantograph and all standard accessories.


The machine is set up and available to view and test drive with the owner, who lives near Banbury.  Pinhole Quilting will be happy to give advice on how to dismantle and move the machine and frame or can provide a quote for this service.  The original machine box is available to help with safe transportation.


A free full-day Foundation Training course is offered to the new owner at Pinhole Quilting's showroom and training centre in Worcestershire.  


Pinhole Quilting will continue to provide support to the new owner in exactly the same way as the original owner.


This is a private sale by the owner but please contact Pinhole Quilting on 01905 942972 initially, or email



SOLD! Handi Quilter Avante PLUS 18" Longarm

  • The Avante is a classic machine in longarm quilting terms.  The owner could add Pro-Stitcher to the setup if desired for computerised quilting.

    ​The HQ Avante has an 18" throat space giving up to 14" of usable quilting space and has established a well-earned reputation as a superb machine that is suitable for either domestic or professional use. 

    The Avante was produced by Handi Quilter between 2010 and 2020 and cemented Handi Quilters place as the leading global brand for longarm machines.  The model went through a number of feature upgrades during the years of production.

    The buyer will get access to the unrivalled support and training opportunities provided by Pinhole Quilting as well as access to the private Facebook group dedicated to Handi Quilter owners.
