Longarm Handi Quilter

Handi Quilter has a great range of machines available to longarm quilters, from the Sweet 16 table top machine to the Infinity 26 for serious business use.  Moveable machines (those on frames) are all upgradable to computerized systems with the Handi Quilter ProStitcher.  I have an HQ Infinity 26 that I use with ProStitcher for allover patterns.  It’s a fantastic machine and offers everything I need for fast, accurate business quilting.  I also have an HQ Amara 20  which I use for all my custom quilting.  It is fast, smooth and sturdy, a sure winner.
