Handi-Quilt



Sweet 16
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 1500 stitches-per-minute. Choose your three favorite speed settings, on the easy-to-use color touch screen and let the machine remember them.

  • Low-bobbin estimator and alarm: Estimates how much thread is on a full bobbin. Sounds an alarm when the bobbin thread is close to running out. Stores bobbin preset values for three different types of thread.
