From their initial invention of a super lightweightportable frame to the "HQ Sweet Sixteen", the Handi Quilter Company's line of products has been designed to respond to the demand from the home machine quilting market, which requires a quality product at an affordable price, which will fit into the home environment.

Today, the company leads the quilting industry with their range of products based on their motto, "Designed by a Quilter, for Quilters"®.

In 2010, Handi Quilter became the only longarm quilting machine company to achieve worldwide safety and electrical certificates for their quilting machines and systems. Hobbysew stores are among the few fully certified Australian dealers.
One of Hobbysew’s favourite tutors, Helen Godden, is an enthusiastic ambassador for these machines. She is a proud owner of a HQ Sweet Sixteen, which is a mid-arm free-motion quilting machine with a sixteen-inch throat and 1600 stitches per minute. For far more insight about Helen’s art, step into her world at www.helengodden.com.

Hobbysew stores offer both Handi Quilter’s HQ18 Avante and Sweet Sixteen Sit Down quilting machines and they are all Australian approved and fully backed by Factory Warranty. Hobbysew staff can guide customers with specific information on:

  • features of each model
  • accessories
  • warranty issues
  • service information
  • classes

Handi Quilter’s machines are easy and fun to use, once you know how. At both Hobbysew Top Ryde and Erina stores, customers can take advantage of an in-store DIY service on "Avante 18" machines for an hourly rate.

Both stores run a 2 hour, one-on-one training lesson on how to load your quilt, how to free motion quilt, how to use pentographs and groovy boards. No more having to pin your quilt top before you quilt! After you complete your lesson, you are presented with a certificate and you also get a Hobbysew discount on battings and backings. Then just book the in-store "Avante 18" whenever you have a new quilt top to finish.
Training and after-purchase support is very important. To help you get the most from your machine purchase, we offer post-purchase training on how to get the most from the functions of your machine and any software capability.

For service and repairs just contact the store where you purchased your machine.

Hobbysew’s support is not limited to their bricks and mortar outlets. Purchase of Handi Quilter machines is available by shopping on-line on this website. Click Here for information on models and accessories such as rulers, DVDs, groovy boards and pantographs.
