Handi Quilter Longarm Quilting Machine Rental

Many quilters want to finish their own quilts but there home machine cannot handle anything more than a small quilt.  Longarm quilters love the ability to clearly see the working area and the ease of moving the machine head across the quilt.  Our Handi Quilter Avante’ and Handi Quilter Fusion offer stitch regulation and produce beautiful stitches. 

Our machines are less than a year old and we maintain them according to Handi Quilter factory specifications. 

The Longarm quilting beginners’ class is required before renting either of our Longarm machines.  Rental times are available by appointment Monday-Saturday in our shop.  We are always here during rental to help you with any problems you may have.

We also offer our HQ Pro Stitcher for rental after you have taken both the Longarm quilting beginners’ class and the advanced class for the Pro Stitcher.
