Preloved Avante’s tend to sell very quickly as they are rightly regarded as high quality workhorses with excellent features and stitch quality.  This machine is only available as a result of the owner not having the time to use it because of ongoing family commitments.  


The machine was serviced by us in February 2022 and has a warranty until February 2024.  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. But the following desirable accessories are also included in the sale:


  • Ruler base and Sure Foot ruler foot

  • Quilt from the Back kit for pantographs

  • Microhandles for precision quilting

  • Additional specialist feet - Glide Foot, Micro Foot, Square Feet

  • Two additional pantographs

  • A selection of ¼” rulers for use with the machine

  • Cindy Needham Ultimate Borders stencil pack


A free place on one of the full-day Foundation Training courses provided by Pinhole Quilting is also included, worth £130.  Attending the course will enable the new owner to make the most of their new setup. 


The machine and accessories are available for demonstration at our showroom, but the buyer will need to collect and transport the frame from the owner’s home in Redditch.  Pinhole Quilting can assist with this if required. 


The frame is currently set up at 8 feet (this requires a minimum space of 9’8” x 7’6” including the space to stand and operate the machine) and can complete quilts up to 76” wide.  Most of the items required to set up the frame at 10 feet are also included, but some additional items will be required from Pinhole Quilting (at a cost of £135), as some components had to be reduced to 8 feet for the original installation.  A 10 foot frame will accommodate quilts up to 100” wide.


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



SOLD! Handi Quilter Avante 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 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.  There have been a number of model changes over the years but this machine has exactly the same features as the current model.  Handi Quilter is by far the leading longarm brand in the UK with a thriving community and support network. 

    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.
