The Handi Quilter Avante was manufactured from 2010 to 2020 so is no longer available to purchase new, but its reputation and reliability are such that preloved versions are still in great demand.  They can represent excellent value for money as a way into longarm quilting with a professional, industrial standard machine.


This machine is just available as a result of a trade-in from a customer who has upgraded.  It is an Avante Original dating from 2012, having had just one owner who has had it regularly serviced, most recently in November 2021.  


With fewer than 7 million stitches, this machine also has a quilt from the back kit for use with pantographs, micro-handles for precision quilting and an original ruler base.  It will also be supplied with all standard accessories that would have been supplied when new.  The machine has been upgraded with improved lighting.


The machine is available to try at our showroom and is offered with the following frame options:


  • NEW 8, 10 or 12 foot Studio2 frame - £ SOLD

  • NEW Little Foot frame - £ SOLD (Self-install, includes delivery within mainland UK)

  • Preloved Little Foot frame - £ SOLD   (Self-install, collection only from our showroom)


The price for the machine with Studio2 frame includes delivery and installation within 100 miles of our showroom, together with initial training on-site.  We can quote for further distances.


The Avante is a classic machine in longarm quilting terms. Quilt up to 14" at a time. This is a longarm that suits both professionals and home quilters alike. The owner could add Pro-Stitcher to the setup if desired for computerised quilting.

Irrespective of the frame choice, the purchaser will be entitled to a FREE one-day Foundation training course at our showroom.


The machine also has the benefit of a 2-year Pinhole Quilting warranty from the date of sale.


Available to Test Drive at our Pinhole Quilting Showroom now. This is a sale through Pinhole Quilting.
