Preloved machines with a fully computerised system are rarely available in the UK.  This one is now on the market as the owner is upgrading to a larger machine.


The Handi Quilter Pro-Stitcher Premium computerised quilting system is an in-house designed system that Handi Quilter has developed over many years.  It is the most full-functioning system on the market, with over 900 standard designs included.  Anyone familiar with embroidery software will find its interface easy to use.  Furthermore, all Handi Quilter products are fully independently certified to meet all UK electrical and H&S standards, and the new owner will have the benefit of free future software upgrades for the lifetime of the tablet.


The 18” Avante needs little introduction as a smooth, reliable machine and this model, originally supplied in 2015, is the most up-to-date ‘Plus Plus’ version found on the most recent versions.  It is supplied with a 10 foot frame, capable of completing quilts up to 100” wide.  The Pro-Stitcher mechanics and tablet are more recent, dating from 2018.  


This setup is the perfect system for either a professional quilting business or for domestic use.  All Handi Quilter machines are of semi-industrial quality and built for many years of use.  This machine has only been very lightly used.


Pinhole Quilting offers various courses to help you make the most of the machine, including a free 1-day Foundation training course usually costing £130.  And various training options are offered on the computerised system - we have a multi-day event with an expert Handi Quilter Ambassador planned for October 2023.  


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


This machine is in excellent condition and will be supplied with all standard items at new, including a separate bobbin winder, rear handlebars, pantograph and laser light. Microhandles for precision quilting are also included.


The machine and accessories are available for demonstration with the owner near Belper in Derbyshire.


This is a very desirable longarm quilting setup at an attractive price.  The owner would prefer to sell everything as a single package, but if you are an existing Avante owner interested in computerising your system, the owner may be willing to consider selling the Pro-Stitcher separately to the machine and frame.


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