Handi Quilter HQ Sweet Sixteen with HQ InSight Stitch Regulation

In stock

The Handi Quilter HQ Sweet Sixteen with HQ InSight Stitch Regulation is the most technologically advanced way to sit-down free motion quilt. The Handi Quilter HQ Sweet Sixteen with HQ InSight Stitch Regulation is simply the best way for quilters to tackle projects with a sit-down machine. With the introduction of the InSight table, quilters are now able to create quilt designs with beautifully even stitches.

If you love to free-motion machine quilt but struggle to fit your project in the small throat space of a domestic sewing machine, you’ll love the HQ Sweet Sixteen. Sixteen inches of throat space gives you room to quilt even a king-size quilt. The smooth surface of the included table enables your project to glide under the needle. The powerful motor quilts with ease and stitches up to 1800 stitches-per-minute. Choose your three favorite speed settings, on the easy-to-use color touch screen and let the machine remember them.
